Professional Theatre For Maine

The Cocktail Hour

Oct 17 - 26, 2014

by by A.R. Gurney

MIX two middle-aged CHILDREN, their PARENTS and ALCOHOL for A Delightfully Potent COMEDY

A well-to-do family becomes shaken and stirred when their middle-aged son announces he’s written a play about them. Filled with Martini dry wit and banter, don’t miss this entertaining and intelligent comedy about a family on the rocks starring Ellen Crawford and Mike Genovese (from NBC’s E.R.), last seen at The Public Theatre in On Golden Pond.
