Somewhere in America, in a typical suburban restaurant on a typical night, Sam and Nicole meet. And sparks fly, setting in motion an expansive tale that traverses five generations of a modern family, from first kiss to final goodbye.
A stunning, big-hearted play that spans nearly eighty years in a single sitting, The Big Meal tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family.
"#1 PLAY OF 2011." -- Time Out Chicago. "A fine new American play -- willing to cut to the chase and cut you to the quick." -- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
