Just in time for election season comes a delicious satire about today’s crazy political times. In this world premiere by local playwright Karen Schiff, two very different sets of conservative parents battle for the hearts, minds, and pocketbooks of their newly engaged teenagers. It’s a fresh new spin on the classic film, “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”, filled with feuding families, hot-button issues, and heartfelt fun.
At sold-out readings of “The First Supper” in New York and Oakland, audience members called the play “masterfully done,” “timeless,” and “provocative and witty”. And Karen Schiff’s book adaptation of the play has been hailed by critics as “satire at its best”, a story that “ingeniously threads hot-button issues into a farcical plot.”
So whether you need a good laugh this election, or a good cry, don’t miss “The First Supper”. It’s one tasty treat!
