Description

The Cocktail Hour

by A. R. Gurney

Directed by Scott Bloom

A young playwright returns home to get permission from his mother and father to produce a play he has written about them. His well-to-do (and rather stuffy) parents are horrified at the idea of their private life being exposed on stage, while his sister is furious that she is only a secondary figure in the play. The cocktail hour soon turns into a shouting match, and, as more drinks are poured, family skeletons come out of the closet. This gripping play deals with the age-old conflict between children and parents over morals and values.
