Center Players Dessert Theater special “singles night” performance of Dinner with Friends

Center Players Dessert Theater will host a special “singles night” performance of Dinner with Friends on Friday, August 10th at 8pm at Center Playhouse, located at 35 South Street in downtown Freehold. 

 While all are welcome to attend the play, single audience members will have an opportunity to mingle and enjoy light refreshments together after the performance. 

 Dinner with Friends was written by Donald Margulies and is directed by Leslie Hochman. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play explores the complexities of marriage and friendship, focusing on the relationship between two married couples: food writers Gabe and Karen, whose apparent domestic bliss is demonstrated as they prepare gourmet meals, and artist Beth and hotshot lawyer Tom whose marriage is breaking up due to Tom’s infidelity. 

 “This wonderful ‘dramedy’ illuminates marital love, friendship and the effect divorce can have on a couple’s best friends,” noted Center Players Artistic Director Bernice Garfield-Szita. “We believe it will provide an interesting backdrop for those seeking to explore a new relationship.” 

Performances run Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm through August 26th. Tickets are priced at $25-27 and are available online at or by calling 732-462-9093. 

Celebrating its 17th season at Center Playhouse, Center Players Dessert Theater is a respected, award-winning organization, presenting high quality, engaging productions featuring local talent in downtown Freehold. In addition to their Signature Play Series, the group also sponsors free play reading events and offers dinner and theater packages with several local restaurants.
