WE SHOULD GET DINNER! is a chaotic comedy about bottled-up anger and boundaries set in relationships. Abby runs into Sean, her ex-stepbrother, who she has not spoken to since their parents’ ugly divorce. Sean is looking to move on with his life, while Abby is looking for someone to walk her down the aisle. Through their tumultuous night, larger questions about broken relationships are explored: What happens to people who drift from your life? What happens if they come back? What do you want to say to them, if anything at all? And what if it’s not how you expected it to be?
