An aspiring playwright goes home to visit his aging WASP parents, primarily to seek permission to get his play (called The Cocktail Hour) produced. Inspired by their secretly dysfunctional family, the son believes the truth will be healing and therapeutic – the parents think it will be devastating and disastrous.
By the author of Love Letters and The Dining Room, A.R. Gurney’s The Cocktail Hour is a witty examination of an overprivileged family that fights domestic battles while downing drinks. It makes for a deliciously funny and also occasionally touching evening, as Gurney’s family sits around raking over old coals and settling old scores, with surprising warmth and humor, during the ritual of the cocktail hour.
