I thought I was on Broadway

"Dinner with Friends" is an engaging stage-play recorded for radio. It is the story of one couple at the end of their relationship intertwined with the story of the couple who were their best friends. It is very funny at spots but would more properly be regarded as a drama than a comedy. This is not a dry "chick-flick" type of tearjerker. It is good theater and engaging throughout. I think anybody in a relationship would appreciate it; in fact I would warn those who are in a troubled marriage that it might hit too close to home with its common truths that are unbared. Give this one a listen. It is much different than an audiobook and I found it refreshingly so. The acting is very good, especially the actress who played the divorcing woman (great voice!).
