Silver service comedy with a slice of drama.
Circa One - Preview 9 August.

Runtime: 2 hours (no interval). The Dinner is an improvised piece. It may contain strong language.

The Dinner is a full-length comedy set at a dinner held for old friends in honour of that special occasion performed only 15 times in Circa One.

Premiering for the first time outside of Europe The Dinner has been a festival hit attracting groups of friends going together. You and your friends may not have such suppressed memories or pent up feelings as our characters, but all old friends have past, don’t they?

What makes this experience utterly unique is that the comedy is entirely improvised. All the actors know is their character and their relationships to the other guests. The rest is the wit and skill of the cast!

You don’t have to guess who’s coming to dinner – you decide.

Note: Show ticket only. Does not include meal. See "ticket + meal" package below.
