Santa Maria Civic Theatre: Dinner With Friends
In this contemporary age when couples befriend other couples to find family companions with common ground, Dinner with Friends seeks to explore what happens when one of these romantic pairs breaks down, and the waves that can make across households. Gabe and Karen, collaborators in the industry of food literature and a husband-and-wife duo that boast a relationship to aspire to, maintain a constant closeness with another couple in their life, Tom and Beth.
Tom, who has known Gabe since college, and Beth, a friend of Karen’s, were set up years ago by Gabe and Karen on a trip to Martha’s Vineyard that they all took together. When, in the first scene, Beth informs Gabe and Karen over dinner that Tom is leaving her, a chain of events is set off that may impact more than one kind of love. Though the events of this play center first around a romantic breakup, they are hardly limited to that specific kind of human bond
