Wimberley Players in rehearsal

Author, Gurney


"I soon found myself writing this strange play which kept wanting to take place in a dining room... This was the room where my parents used to give their sparkling dinner parties, the laughter from which I could hear echoing up the stairs long after I had shaken hands and been sent to bed... Yet just as I used to squirm in my seat at the strictures of the dining room, so did my rebelliousness assert itself against these rules of drama."

A.R. Gurney (Showbill, 1982)

Renown playwright A. R. Gurney's comic drama, The Dining Room, is the Wimberley Player's last full-length production of their highly successful 2003 season. Gurney, one of America's most prolific modern playwrights, is the author of such theatrical treats as Love Letters, Sylvia, The Cocktail Hour, O. Jerusalem, and The Golden Age. The play opens November 14 with Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8 PM and Sunday afternoons at 2:30 PM through November 30.

A highly talented team of cast and crew has assembled under the direction of Jenny Benedict to bring Gurney's richly conceived comedy to the Greenhouse Theatre in Woodcreek. 

Wimberley Players in rehearsal WP Board Member Rob Sandefur is serving as producer and Carla Daws is Assistant Director. Cast members are veterans Jenny Benedict, Carla Daws, John Daws, Allan Eastwood, Bill Hamilton, Judith Laird, Kevin Pierce, Rob Sandefur, Kimy Suarez, Amanda Troxell, and Steve Uzzell together with newcomers Chandler Allen, Taylor Allen, Jamie Christian, Kristyn Crowe, Justin Finch, Mallory Mazzarella, and Thomas Uzzell.

The play is unique in that it takes place on a single set, a dining room, representing a host of dining rooms belonging to a host of different characters, 57 to be exact. The action is comprised of a collection of inter-related scenes that range from the comic to the serious. Each sketch introduces a different set of people and events, from little boys to stern grandfathers, from giggling teenage girls to Irish housemaids. As one comic scene succeeds another, a whole pattern of American life emerges. "If the dining room walls could talk, this is what they would say!"
