Can a man offer an opinion about abortion? Can a straight person opine on gay marriage?  Does a house full of predominantly white people get to consider itself, “diverse?”  In Michael Perlman’s critically acclaimed new work, Chekovian in style and written collaboratively, a group of friends convene at a vacation home and begin to figure out who and what gets a seat “At the Table.”  As new pals are invited into the mix, this so called table becomes less inviting than it first seems. Race, religion, gender and sexuality position themselves in the forefront of intimate, impassioned debate; Stereotypes are obliterated, tensions rise and soon our protagonist Lauren must come to terms with her friends being less idyllic than they seemed.

In this alternate reality they must reckon with their fates

in order to find the answers they are desperately seeking.

A pair of folks, one older, one younger, as often is the case. They grow up together, rely on each other--which is necessary when yourMother has a very, very demanding job. Sometimes they fight, sometimes they don’t,as such a pair often does. And when it seems life may be this way forever, in comes a little Poison.And then they grow apart. And grow back together. And then apart again. Just a story like any other. Sort of.
