The play Dinner for Schmucks is a well-written light comedy of errors which contains all of the elements for a perfect evening pastime: an intelligent comic plot, inspired actors prepared to spin this comedy of errors to death and still make it interesting, and the main character who, in the end, learns his lesson for all the bad things he has done in life.
Apart from the scintillating text and wonderfully erroneous situations, the actors are the main focus of the play. The galimatias of unexpected characters appearing at the apartment door, prompted to action by confusing and hilarious phone calls, causes an abundance of entertaining plots which end in the total downfall of the main character while presenting an ironic morale. The play Dinner for Schmucks is a great realistic comedy, similar to a vaudeville and middle-class comedy.
