New Vic Theatre Production

By Tanya Ronder
Directed by Zoë Waterman

The things that they remember, the things they forget and the things they pass on, define a family’s history.

For the Best family, their sturdy, handcrafted dining table holds the stories of six generations; each scratch, crack and stain telling a story about their lives, and the lives of their ancestors.  Stories of love and death, of arguments and of travel across continents.

Beginning life at the family’s home in Lichfield, Staffordshire, the table is a symbol of lives lived, and tells many stories. But when it comes to their family history, how much can they trust their memories?

First produced at the National Theatre, this is the regional premiere of Tanya Ronder’s Table: a moving drama about belonging that explores how different people remain connected through centuries by the stories, and possessions, passed down by their ancestors.

Contains strong adult content, including nudity, scenes of a sexual nature and strong language.

Pre-Show Talk – Thu 14 June 6.30pm
Join us for a pre-show talk with Table playwright, Tanya Ronder and Director Zoë Waterman, to find out more about the story behind the play and how we approached this regional première.
Speak to our Box Office Team on 01782 717962 for more details.
