Dinner with Friends – Season 1

Dinner with Friends is a tragi-comedy series of six episodes following Clive ‘Brick’ Murphy, a gentle, unflappable optimist, as he tests his self-designed prototype website, Dinner With Friends, to eat dinner with strangers from around the world.

Each episode revolves around Brick meeting a new stranger for a ‘virtual dinner’. As Brick slowly comes to terms with his grief over the death of his mother over the course of the series, at its heart, Dinner with Friends is a show about the small, fleeting connections that add up to something beautiful; that the whole is bigger than the sum of its parts.

Dinner with Friends was shot during lockdown using iPhones and minimal cast/crew contact as a way to capture a moment in time. It is written and directed by Adelaide filmmakers Lucy Campbell and Claire Bishop, produced by creative producer Matt Byrne, and starring Nathan O’Keefe (A Sunburnt ChristmasDeadline Gallipoli).
