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. THE BIG MEAL is a stunning, big-hearted play that spans nearly eighty years in roughly ninety minutes.
“Packed with humanity and humor, The Big Meal dishes up laughs and tears.” – NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
