The pre-dinner cocktail hour is a time-honored ritual at John’s parents’ elegant home, but when he returns to announce he’s written a play about them, their calm demeanor dissolves. As the martinis flow so do the revelations and recriminations. Both hysterically funny and heartbreakingly poignant, The Cocktail Hour is a comedy about how far one family can stretch the ties that bind them. From the author of The Dining Room, Love Letters, and Florida Rep’s all-time biggest hit, Sylvia, this play will have audiences shaken and stirred with laughter as one family confronts its demons.
