When a group of friends escape the city on their annual weekend retreat, they outlaw cellphones, ban the Internet, and force themselves to talk to one another. But when the liquor starts the flow and the tongues start to loosen, no topic is off-limits and no conversation is off the table. AT THE TABLE was the runaway storefront theatre hit of 2017, selling out its entire Winter run, receiving a Summer Remount, before selling out that and both of its extensions. It also won 4 Jeff Awards including Best Production - Play, Best Ensemble and Best Director - Play for Spenser, who was a first-time nominee.

One of the Best Shows of 2017

★ ★ ★ ★ One of the most riveting shows of the theater season ... [Spenser] Davis’ direction does not mess around for a second ... amped-up, high-stakes, hyper-realistic ... This show has my highest recommendation.”

★ ★ ★ ★ Director Spenser Davis and a sterling cast elevate the material to impressive heights ... some of the finest storefront ensemble acting in recent memory.

Such an ensemble, they irresistibly suggested to me the early days of Steppenwolf ... The same attack, the same ease within the ensemble, the same take-no-prisoners aesthetic in choosing material.

★ ★ ★ ★ Easily the best and most necessary play I’ve seen this year... confrontational, provocative and unforgettable.
