GUESS WHO’S COMING FOR THE DINNER
by Roddy Doyle
A staged reading | directed by Günther Grosser | with Moses Adekunle, Stephen Patrick Hannah, Mary Kelly, Sean Loftus, Julie Trappett and Cathy Walsh
Larry loves his brood of daughters and one son and goes along with all their craziness because they spoil him to death. Until one day, when the girls bring home a black man. Guess Who’s Coming for the Dinner is the amusing tale of a dyed-in-the-Green Irishman trying to cope with his conflicting feelings about having a black man for a potential son-in-law.
Roddy Doyle is one of Ireland’s greatest living writers. His Barrytown trilogy – The Commitments (1987), The Snapper (1990) and The Van (1991) – was made into successful films. He has won numerous awards including the Booker Prize 1993 for Paddy Clarke Ha Ha Ha.
