Some scenes are funny, some poignant. It is a study on the various purposes that dining rooms have had in our lives, but seem to be having less of, as society seems to get busier and busier.  Tickets are $7.50 at the door. The play is approximately 2 hours long, and includes an intermission.  For more info: cplant@sd63.bc.ca
