This easy-to-produce, wildly funny comedy is about three generations of a Jewish family. All the fast-paced action takes place around an all-purpose dining table; sometimes a restaurant table, and other times the dining table of a Jewish mother to end all Jewish mothers. Other characters include an exceedingly irreverent younger son, his martini-swilling older brother who is married to a shiksa, and the older brother's two kids. Table Settings, a highly acclaimed and long-running Off Broadway success, is an hysterical look at an American family.
"Thoroughly engaging." - Time
"If you have ever brought up a family...or even if you have ever tried to bring up a family...I implore you to see Table Settings." - N.Y. Post
Table Settings premiered at Playwrights Horizons in New York City in January 1980 under the direction of James Lapine.
