"The Dining Room"
The play is a dramatic comedy set in the dining room of an elegant home of the early 1900s, and deals with the declining importance of a typical dining room over the years from the 1930s to the 1950s. The stories are portrayed in a mosaic of interrelated scenes with members of different families that own the home over the years.
