The World Premiere of “Sunday Dinner,” opened in January 2020. Written and directed by Tony Blake, “Sunday Dinner” is produced for Theatre Forty by David Hunt Stafford.

A young Catholic priest has just flown home to inform his parents of a major life-changing decision. But his declaration is interrupted when his father pulls him aside to “confess” an ugly family secret; a secret that is about to help some family members, but seriously harm others. Expecting to receive absolution and clear his conscience, the father is stymied when the son/priest refuses to grant his father’s request, leaving the son wrestling with whether or not to reveal his father’s deceit. Does the truth really set us free? And is doing the right thing worth the price when the consequences can have long-lasting, crippling effects on a family?

The cast of the new play Sunday Dinner includes (in alphabetical order) John Combs, Dennis Hadley, Kevin Linehan, Meghan Lloyd, Michele Schultz, Sharron Shayne and James Tabeek.
