In a typical restaurant, on a typical night, The Big Meal by Dan LeFranc tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family. This multi-award nominated US play is a stunning, big-hearted play that spans nearly eighty years in roughly ninety minutes. Somewhere in America, in a typical suburban restaurant on a typical night, Sam and Nicole first meet. Sparks fly. And so begins an expansive tale that traverses five generations of a modern family, from first kiss to final goodbye. Dan LeFranc’s, The Big Meal received its world premiere at American Theatre Company in Chicago, where it was declared the "Number one Play of 2011” by Time Out Chicago and garnered five Joseph Jefferson Award nominations. The play received its off-Broadway premiere at Playwrights Horizons, where it picked up a Drama Desk nomination and four Lucille Lortel nominations, including for Outstanding Play.
