THE ART OF DINING
THE GGC Theatre
Juicy. Delicious. Salivate your way through THE ART OF DINING by award winning playwright Tina Howe. A hilarious exploration of tantalizing appetites and desires. Then eat with the cast. Gourmet meals at every show.
The play takes place in the late 70's in upscale New Jersey at the shore. Ellen and Cal have opened a restaurant, The Golden Carrousel, and after four weeks the place is taking off with the dinner crowd. Ellen is the passionate gourmet chef, and Cal is the passionate Maitre'D, host, waiter and bartender. They have been married for 8 years and this restaurant is their baby. Tonight, we join them and their very eccentric guests as Cal worries about paying off their $75,000 business loan, impressing the diners for future reservations and Ellen lovingly and sensually creates gourmet meals. Tonight's guests are the married couple who are gourmands and cannot control any of their appetites; the women who show up to eat and diet at the same time; the shy, neurotic, romantic female writer hoping for everything who is meeting the charming, debonair publisher who has an appetitie for life. Everyone craves and eats and laughs and the audience will smell the food, join in the laughter, feel the passion.
