Circle Players announces auditions for “Dinner With Friends”, by Donald Margulies, the second production of our 2015-2016 season.
Director Tom Frascatore seeks two men and two women, ages mid-30’s-late 40’s.
Synopsis: In their Connecticut home, Karen and Gabe, international food writers, are giving a dinner for their married best friends, Beth and Tom. Beth arrives alone, and It soon emerges that Tom has left her for another woman. Gabe and Karen are almost as crushed as Beth is, having expected ‘to grow old and fat together, the four of us.’ Sides are taken and defenses are made – but the real turmoil brewing is between Karen and Gabe, who suddenly find their faith in their own marriage shaken to the core.
This nuanced script earned Donald Marguiles a Pulitzer Prize for drama. New York Magazine said of the original production, “There is skillful construction here, as well as keen psychological insight… Donald Margulies is establishing himself as one of our leading playwrights.”
WINNER: 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Drama
