The Springville Players present “Dinner with Friends,” a bittersweet relationship drama at Springville Center for the Arts, April 11-21, 2013. Full of humor, warmth, insight and wisdom, “Dinner with Friends” is an examination of the married lives of two couples who have been extremely close for years, and the impact felt by both couples when one relationship goes sour.

Gabe and Karen, a happily married middle-aged couple, have been friends with Tom and Beth, another married couple, for many years. In fact, it was Gabe and Karen who fixed them up. While having dinner at Gabe’s and Karen’s home one night, Beth tearfully reveals Tom has been unfaithful. As Beth and Tom’s marriage unravels, Gabe and Karen are forced to reexamine their friendships and their own marriage.
