The Cocktail Hour by: A.R. Gurney


Jul 21, 2017 to Aug 6, 2017
08:00 PM until 10:00 AM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.


Directed by: Paula Keenan -The setting is an upper-class home in the 1970s. The play opens on Bradley and Ann having preprandial cocktails with their ostensibly single son and daughter. The cocktail hour stretches out because "the maid doesn't know how to cook a roast". So the little family carries on consuming increasing amounts of alcohol leading to increasing arguments and laugh out loud comedy!
Their son, John, is an editor at a publishing company and a part-time playwright.  He has written a play that seems to present an unflattering picture of the family, and the parents are upset. The discussion of John's play, which is also called
The Cocktail Hour, gives playwright Gurney a lot of opportunity to lampoon the theater scene.
