WESTPORT, Conn. – The first major revival in decades of A.R. Gurney's "The Dining Room" will open Tuesday, April 30, at the Westport Country Playhouse.

“The Dining Room,” is a witty and heartfelt story of the American family and its vanishing traditions, the playhouse said in a statement. It is set a signature room, where people gather, meals are eaten, conversations begin and generations converge.
