The Scene on Stage: May features two shows posted on 05/01/2022

Justin Lazenby, director of the Nutz-n-Boltz Theater Company’s (NNB) May production of “The Dining Room,” once acted in a production of the comedy during his college years. The play is set in the dining room of a house over the course of many years, with a cast of six playing 50 different characters.

“When I was in it, it was fun for that aspect,” Lazenby said. “You just got to shuffle the cards of all the human interactions that any one person might have encountered in their life.”

Those human interactions include scenes such as Thanksgiving with an aging grandmother, a birthday party with small children, adult children fighting over the house's furnishings and older children needing to live at home again.

Lazenby noted that the scenes organically flow from one to another with quick exits and entrances and is a “peppering of 30 different messages” in an array of different stories.

“It’s one of those shows that has a little something for everyone, which I really like,” he said.

And while the play offers a lot of humor, it also has some meaningful moments that will touch the audience.

“It’s funny, but at the same time there’s a lot of life in there,” Lazenby said, noting that the production is appropriate for all ages. “The comedy comes from having to deal with life, with hard decisions.”

NNB presents “The Dining Room,” by A. R. Gurney, from Friday, May 20 through Sunday, June 5, at the Boring Grange, 27861 Grange Street in Boring. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 3 p.m. on Sundays.

Ticket prices are $12-15, with group discounts available. For more information, or to make reservations, call 503-593-1295 or visit nnbtheater.com.
