★★★★
“The young company is acting the the living bejesus out of Perlman’s terrific script… one of the most riveting shows of the theater season.”
Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
★★★★
“A blazing young ensemble brings its best to the table…
some of the finest storefront ensemble acting in recent memory.”

Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago

 

“One of the best shows you’re likely to see in 2017… Agba, Linder and Weiss all give truly standout performances—but they are really just the top three among equals… There is an interiority to all the performances that is striking. It’s like Chekhov for the smartphone generation. And it’s definitely a must-see.”
Alex Huntsberger, NewCity Stage

Six friends head out of the city on their annual retreat for the weekend. With no social media, no cellphones, no internet allowed all, this leaves them with one thing to do… look up from their screens and talk to each other. And when the liquor starts flowing and the tongues start to loosen, no conversation is uneventful and no topic is off-limits. AT THE TABLE is a new comedy that begs the question: what happens when those with privilege are pushed to the periphery and a marginalized minority suddenly finds its voice amplified? Who is allowed at what discussion table, and who isn’t?
