Dan LeFranc's "The Big Meal" tells the extraordinary story of an ordinary family portrayed by eight actors sitting at one table in a suburban chain restaurant. The ingestion of plates of food becomes charged with ominous portent in this tale about love, marriage, and death spanning 80 years after a young couple meet for a drink and sparks fly, setting in motion five generations of family drama and comedy. Mohonk Mountain Stage Readers Theater will perform a staged reading of "The Big Meal" at Unison in New Paltz on December 12 at 8 pm and December 13 at 8pm. Tickets are $25 in advance, $20 at the door. (845) 255-1559;
