The Big Meal

Written By: Dan LeFranc

Directed By: David Strickland

Winner! 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award
2012 Lucille Lortel Award Nomination - Outstanding Play

Somewhere in America, in a typical suburban restaurant on a typical night, Sam and Nicole first meet. Sparks fly. And so begins an expansive tale that traverses five generations of a modern family, from first kiss to final goodbye. A stunning, big-hearted play that spans nearly eighty years in roughly ninety minutes, The Big Meal  tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family. A life-in-overdrive comedic drama.
