Summary

I am honoured to meet you.
You are, as they say, a man after my own heart.
And you have lifted mine.
My heart, that is.

Two men, together, on the edge of heaven. In a strange restaurant, two American giants who revere each other, Groucho Marx and T. S. Eliot, meet for dinner. Both in their own ways great defiant spirits, they create magic and anarchy, revealing secrets and sorrows. The evening is presided over by the Proprietor, who seems to control the workings of the universe. Or perhaps not.

All is revealed, or nearly so.

A fast-paced fictional dinner date like no other, Frank McGuinness’s Dinner With Groucho was first produced by b*spoke theatre company at The Civic, Dublin, in September 2022.
