Screening of Dinner Rush, performance of one-act play Five Years Later, followed by Q&A

Italytime and the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute are pleased to sponsor this new venture of marrying cinema and theater this spring semester. This pairing of cinema and theater is the brainchild of Italytime, the notion that both creative formats share the common goal of representing life’s experiences on both the live stage and on the silver screen.

February 9, 6:00 PM, Italytime and the Calandra Institute will screen Bob Giraldi’s critically acclaimed film, Dinner Rush (2001). The film will be followed by a one-act play Five Years Later, by Paolo Tartamella (15 min.), inspired by Dinner Rush; father and son clash on the future of their relationship. The actors are Fulvio Della Volta (son) and David Donahoe (father), directed by Vittorio Capotorto.

The screening of Dinner Rush and the performance of Five Years Later will be followed by a Q&A with director Bob Giraldi.
