Playwright A.R. Gurney explores the different personalities that make up a family in “The Dining Room.” The play consists of several vignettes about people who come together across the table spanning from the 1930s to the 1970s. Six actors in the Interact Theatre Company’s production, opening today at the Victory Theatre Center, will tackle the challenge of portraying multiple personalities — and ages, said actor Matthew Ashford. “This play is an actor’s dream,” said actress and choreographer Tracy Powell, who is president of Interact.
