Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama Over the past decade, Donald Margulies has written some of the most insightful works in contemporary American drama. His body of work includes The Loman Family Picnic, Sight Unseen, The Model Apartment and Collected Stories, and with each succeeding work his audiences have grown. It is no surprise that his newest work is his most critically successful yet. As with all of Margulies's work, he is a master of observing what might be considered the ordinary moments of life and its foibles with fresh ears. Dinner with Friends is a funny yet bittersweet examination of the married lives of two couples who have been extremely close for dozens of years. Although it seems to be treading on familiar ground, Dinner keeps changing its perspective to show how one couple's breakup can have equally devastating effects on another's stability. "This is a smart and subtle play that understand there are no easy answers as people evolve and relationships settle into routine."-David Kaufman, Daily News "Donald Margulies has drawn one of the most complex and convincing portraits of a marriage in recent memory."-Debra Jo Immergut, The Wall Street Journal "Dinner with Friends is entertainment as succulent as it is sobering."-John Simon, New York Magazine Donald Margulies lives with his wife and son in New Haven, CT. He is the author of numerous plays, including Collected Stories and Sight Unseen.
