La Cena (The Dinner) is an intimate theatrical experience in which the audience, sharing wine with the actors, becomes witness to the unraveling of a psychological thriller.
After five years apart, Giovanna returns to her father’s house to introduce her new fiance, Francesco. Her father lives alone, accompanied only by his unwaveringly loyal servant, Fangio. As if it were one more dinner guest, the past crashes in and disrupts what could have been the only chance at reuniting.
