REVIEWS

‘PAUL SMITH takes us to a “Dinner” with an elderly couple and their uninvited guest. The older characters are charming and seem eager to make theIr unexpected visitor a fine meal. The young man has had more than his share of troubles, but alas, perhaps his luck has changed. The older married couple seem more than willing to help the rehabilitation of this downtrodden young man starting with a fine meal.’ – Jack Levine on New Play Exchange

 

.Love the full flavor of the macabre? Smith serves up the unexpected in DINNER, a tightly structured short play with a delicious ending. A fabulous play with juicy roles for mature actors, DINNER would be a fine choice for any short play festival!’ – Vivian Lermond on New Play Exchange
