Dinner With Friends

by Donald Margulies
directed by Bob Kleinberg

Married couples Karen and Gabe and Beth and Tom have been best friends for years, raising their children like a family, sharing their summers at Martha's Vineyard and dreaming how they will grow old together. Yet one evening at dinner, with Tom heading out of town, Beth breaks down and tells Karen and Gabe that her marriage to Tom is falling apart, starting a chain reaction as each one attempts to come to terms about their relationship with each other.

"A breezy comedy of modern manners that turns poignant and deeply affecting by its end."
The San Francisco Examiner

Gabe: Jim Adams, Karen: Michelle Johncock,
Tom: Brian Lewandowski, Beth: Jenna Jones Paradis

Now accepting applications for next season

Greenbelt Arts Center is actively soliciting submissions for its 2017/2018 resident season.

If there is a play or musical you are interested in directing for us, please send (by email or regular mail) the attached play submission form along with either a PDF or six hard copies of the script to the address below. When submitting, be sure to mark the box for a "GAC-sponsored" production. Any purchased copies of scripts will be returned to you after the selection process is final.

The target date for these submissions is November 30, 2016. Submissions before and up to that date are welcome; submissions beyond that date will only receive consideration at the discretion of the selection committee.

Additionally, if you have any part of a production team lined up, please let us know. That can affect our choices (and make it much easier for you down the road, if part of your team is already on-board).

If you are interested in directing, but would like some guidance about possible shows, we will work with you to identify some choices that we feel would be a good fit for our audiences. Of course, a show you feel passionate about is always the best choice!

Auditions for A Visit From Scarface will be held at the Greenbelt Arts Center on Monday, October 10, and Tuesday October 11 at 7:30. Call-backs if needed will be Wednesday, October 12.

The Story:
The year is 1932 and the famous Hollywood writer Ben Hecht has just finished his screenplay for a movie produced by Howard Hughes called SCARFACE, loosely based on the real life story of Al Capone. Hecht's agent shows up at his Hollywood apartment to get the script but it's missing! Capone has sent a couple of his associates to have a little "talk" about the script with Ben. The action and dialog flies faster than bullets as Hecht tries to get the script back while dodging the gangsters, his agent, a blond starlet, a woman from the movie censor board, a drunk neighbor and the house detective.
