Drama Theatre, Sydney Opera House

Sydney Theatre Company presents
By Moira Buffini

A feast of wicked comedy

Paige is a socialite extraordinaire with a nasty streak that runs a mile deep. Tonight, she is reluctantly celebrating her husband’s best-selling book. The usual suspects have been invited for dinner – an artist, a scientist and a newsreader amongst them. As the entrées quiver on their plates, a stranger knocks on the door. The night will not end well.

Moira Buffini’s Dinner is a devilishly black satire on middle-class assumptions. Nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, it will have you laughing hysterically one minute and jumping with shock the next. The knives are out, but nothing is sharper than the insults.

STC Resident Director Imara Savage completes a comedy hat-trick here at STC, following the uproariously funny productions After Dinner and Hay Fever. Leading the fine-dining fireworks is Caroline Brazier (ABC’s Rake), with Brandon Burke (Arms and the Man) and Bruce Spence (The Secret River) joining in for what promises to be a very wicked food fight.

“A delicious feast of comedy at its most heartless and macabre.”
The Telegraph, UK
