About

We will begin our season this fall with “Omnium Gatherum”, a finalist in the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for drama, by Theresa Rebeck and Alexandra Gersteon-Vassilaros. We have been fortunate to keep the original, talented cast for this production since “Omnium Gatherum”, scheduled to open this May, had to be postponed. The play setting is a dinner party in which a perfect hostess has invited an assortment of opinionated personalities to share an exquisite feast of food and wine. The hilarious, although at times contentious, debate among the guests explores issues that parallel the global pandemic.

Director's Statement

Why  choose Omnium Gatherum  which translates, a miscellaneous collection; a hodgepodge? I wanted to present a work that delivered a juxtapostioned  view of  guests feasting on an elaborately prepared meal of wine and food amid the conversations of world hunger and racial inequality. I feel that the play does a great job of entertaining and creating an awareness of how much we are all interdependent of  each other – something that we are experiencing right now. Hope is what this work offers, and a way that may lead us to a new normal where everyone counts.
