Somewhere in America, in a typical suburban restaurant on a typical night, Sam and Nicole first meet. Sparks fly. And so begins an expansive tale that traverses five generations in a modern family, from first kiss to final goodbye. A stunning, big-hearted play spanning nearly 70 years in 80 minutes, The Big Meal tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family. Winner of the 2010 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award.
