Mealtime Conversations

90-minute comedy. Cast of 8.

Questions of gender and sexual identity are posed in a new light each night in this full-length comedy about dating in the modern age. With a script designed such that every character can be played by an actor of any gender without changing a single line of dialogue, six actors trade roles each night to present a series of conversations that carry different implications with every performance.
