Dinner is at 8

‘Dinner is at 8’ uses steel utensils as its central object of play. While steel utensils work as a sensory medium through the play of sight and sound for the very young audiences, they also metaphorically allow the creators of the play, to think through the concept of the “everyday.” They look at the “everyday” not just as the idea of the routine, the mundane and the ordinary, but as that which accommodates the special in the mundane, the extra in the ordinary. “Everyday” is how we live and what we do; yet it also is the break that stops what we do and how we live. This play is an ode to this notion of the “everyday.”
