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.

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.

Friendships, too, are challenged and made raw as this drama moves through a subtle examination of why we keep people constant in our lives, and what it means when both people need to move on.

Through recollections, arguments, impassioned grasps for personal freedom, and revelation of past hurt, each of these four adults rediscovers the meaning behind their connection to one another. When the dust has settled and the healing on all sides is closer to completion, more than one relationship may have found its end.

Cross-talk and subtext are noticeable tools of this play, and both honor the realism with which these people come together and come apart. This thematic element is ever-present in the aptly-titled Dinner with Friends , an eventful but quiet and moving meditation on challenge and communication in relationships of every kind.

All around us, relationships are changing, marriages are breaking up. In , it won the coveted Pulitzer Prize for drama. Currently, there continue to be simultaneous productions all over the country, and a made-for-television movie is in the making. So just what is so appealing about the notion of impermanence and the yearning for something else that makes this play so universally popular? Everyone relates to these themes. On the contrary, they are nodding their heads in agreement and laughing in recognition. Whether members of the audience can relate to the forty-something couples who come of age in the radical seventies, become parents under the Reagan administration, and then either solidify or lose touch with their long-term relationships, the play exposes the same, universal insecurities that people face every time there are shattering changes in their lives.
