A two-act romantic comedy about love, marriage and Mother. Suitable for regional and community theatres.

An ensemble piece for four actors, including a tour de force part for a middle-aged woman, it's a deceptively light comedy with deep currents underneath, in which an only-son struggles to free himself from his single mother.

It's in modern dress, has minimal set requirements - the living room of an apartment serves both acts - and is inexpensive to produce. Each act consists of one scene.

“I loved Sunday Dinner... and would recommend it to anyone. It's a fantastic show.”
