Could you kill someone with a lobster?
Sydney Theatre Company's Dinner by Moira Buffini 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.
Paige, played by Caroline Brazier (ABC’s Rake), 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.
"A delicious feast of comedy at its most heartless and macabre"
