O Meu Jantar Com o André (My Dinner with André)
“O Meu Jantar Com o André” (My Dinner with
André) by Wallace Shawn and André Gregory
with António Filipe and  Manuel Wiborg

The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth together with the Portuguese Consulate in New Bedford and the New Bedford Whaling Museum, is honored to welcome to the University’s main theatre and to Bristol Community College, Portuguese actors Manuel Wiborg and Diogo Doria for the stage performance of “O Meu Jantar com o André” (My Dinner with André) written by Wallace Shawn and André Gregory.

“O Meu Jantar com o André” is a passionate, volatile and humorous encounter between two friends who haven’t seen each other for a long period of time and decide to catch up to speed during dinner. André’s friend, Wally, is an American actor and playwright who is more concerned with how they will be getting their next meal. 

As André tells him of their global forays involving esoteric experiments, theatrical and mystical adventures, Wally listens with skepticism, as they alternate between reactions of awe, amazement, admiration and anger. What finally emerges is a sensitive portrait of a friendship that survives and transcends contrasting assumptions about love, death, art, and continuous demand of man by self-realization.
