The Edge Theater Company 2017 Summer Series Continues
Dinner By Moira Buffini Directed by Scott Bellot August 25 - September 17, 2017
It's my creation – like Frankenstein's monster.' 
An artist, a scientist and a sexpot are coming to dinner. Paige, hostess extraordinaire, is celebrating the publication of her husband's bestseller. The arrival of Mike, marooned in the foggy lane after crashing his van, provides an unexpected addition to the evening's entertainment. A silent waiter, sourced from an obscure website, completes the picture. Primordial Soup is the first on the menu – let the dinner from hell begin. 

A wonderful comedy chiller, with blood on the carpet before bedtime.


The cast includes Carol Bloom (Paige), Verl Hite (Lars), Sean Michael Cummings (Mike), Jack Wefso (Hal), Emily Tuckman (Wynne) Samara Bridwell (Sian) and Ronan Viard (Waiter).
Dinner was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

Soleimanpour, forbidden to leave his home country, escaped censorship and created a global sensation that no one is allowed to talk about.

In addition, the audience is also requested to know nothing of the play other than its name and the playwright (so don’t Google anything if you plan to attend!).
Pipedream Productions, an enterprising Denver theatre company, will be producing…
