The Dinner Parting is a screwball comedy of remarriage. Susan, desperate to impress her boyfriend and make good on a lie concerning the recent death of her father, enlists Henry – her estranged husband – to pose as her brother and jointly host an elegant dinner for four. Henry, crippled by narcissism and pettiness, attempts to sabotage the evening through recklessly embellishing Susan’s lies and inviting a disagreeable friend to the occasion. More unexpected guests arrive causing the night to further unravel despite Susan’s best efforts. When a tragedy strikes, the evening ends with revelations and unexpected couplings.
