Six generations, twenty-three characters one very special piece of furniture. Tanya Ronder's thrilling play is an epic tale of belonging, identity and the things we pass on.
Table was the first play to be staged in The Shed, a temporary venue at the National Theatre, London, to celebrate original, ambitious and unexpected theatre. It premiered in April 2013 in a production directed by Rufus Norris.
'highly inventive and often touching... there is a great deal of humour, but the play is also dark, sharply depicting the sad human truth that we often inflict the worst pain on those we love, or are supposed to love'
'tremendous... richly textured'
Tanya Ronder trained at RADA as an actress before becoming a playwright. Her plays include adaptations of Blood Wedding (Almeida Theatre), Vernon God Little (Young Vic, nominated for an Olivier Award) and Peribanez.
