Dinner (Acorn Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

When we think of a dinner party, we think of good food, tasteful conversation and maybe the odd drunken guest. Such is the audacity of protagonist Paige’s party that none of the above is experienced. Instead, this haunting yet humorous production brings a fusion of unconventional guests and eccentric conversation to the table, leaving you crying with laughter. A seamlessly witty script and talented cast create an explosion of voices and stories, whilst also featuring Alfred Enoch, following his appearances in the Harry Potter series. Structured around a peculiar menu, the exchange between scenes and dialogue is effortlessly fast-moving allowing the audience a laugh a minute. This darkly humorous dinner party is one I shall never forget.

C, 3-25 Aug, 7.30pm (8.45pm), £7.50 – £10.50, fpp256.
