4/30 - 5/15 South Park Theatre Presents “Dilemmas with Dinner”

$12 per person admission. $2 off per person for groups of 15 or more. Call 412-831-8552 for reservations.

Junior executive Brooke invites her boss and his wife over for dinner in hopes of securing a promotion. While frantically getting ready, Brooke and her husband discover that the hired help is coincidentally the boss' ex-daughter-in-law. Just when it seems everything that could go wrong has gone wrong, Brooke's boss has an unfortunate announcement to make -- though not as unfortunate as the candlestick attack, appetizer toss and general chaos that then ensue! Written by Robin Roberts.
