Dinner, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


It's my creation - like Frankenstein's monster. An artist, a scientist and a sexpot are coming to dinner.

Paige, hostess extraordinaire, is celebrating the publication of her husband's bestseller.

The arrival of Mike, marooned in the foggy lane after crashing his van, provides an unexpected addition to the evening's entertainment.

A silent waiter, sourced from an obscure website, completes the picture.

Primordial Soup is first on the menu.- Let the dinner from hell begin.

A wonderful comedy chiller, with blood on the carpet before bedtime.

Dinner premiered at the National Theatre's Loft space in November 2002.

Review by

A black comedy about an unlikely group of dinner guests. The food is terrible, the company is worse. There is a further complication of the intrusion by a young man who crashed his van and needs a telephone; he joins the party. But who is he? The mysterious waiter adds an element of suspense to an already sinister group. Well written, with just the right plot twists.
