About the Show

Dinner At Eight is a classic 1930's “dramedy” by the highly regarded Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman. It is the story of a society matron and her plans to throw a truly elegant dinner party. It delves into the intertwined lives of each of the invited guests during the week leading up to the party. It features a large ensemble cast of well written character roles. It is a rarely done piece, having only two major Broadway revivals (1966 and 2003). It was previously presented at the Heights Players in 1982. The play was made in 1933 into a now classic film featuring the talents of such well known actors of the time as Jean Harlow, Marie Dressler, Billie Burke, John Barrymore, Lionel Barrymore and Wallace Beery.
