Copenhagen Theatre Circle is proud to present a new interpretation of A.R. Gurney's The Dining Room - a classic from the American modern theatre.

Each of a total of 18 short, interrelated and intertwining scenes tells the story of a different family during different periods, and in the centre of their interactions is the same dining room, bringing them together. Expect the unexpected, with characters from different times appearing on stage simultaneously. Thus before Tom Stoppard's Arcadia there was The Dining Room.

The original play was written about White Anglo-Saxon Protestant (WASP) families in the northeastern United States. Our director, Jeremy Thomas-Poulsen, will bring the stories into the 21st century and relocate the play to Europe. Here we see the same longing for and fear of traditions dying out in favour of a faster, more power-hungry society, giving the plot a deliciously modern twist with live musical accompaniment.

There is limited street parking near the venue, although there is underground parking for 130 cars accessible from the corner of Serridslevvej and Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads, beside the theatre. Be aware, however, that there can be great demand for parking in connection with events in nearby Fælledparken or the National Stadium (Parken). We would therefore recommend taking public transport. The nearest S-train station is Nordhavn. The theatre can easily be reached by buses 1A, 14, 40 and 401.

This English-speaking group of theatre enthusiasts has been providing Copenhagen audiences with high-quality drama in English for over 45 years. It currently presents three stage productions for the general public each year and hosts play-readings, improvisation courses and all manner of other theatre- and acting-related events throughout the season.
