Hapgood Theatre Company presents The Cocktail Hour, by A.R. Gurney.
The time is the mid '70s, the place a city in upstate New York. John, a playwright, returns to his family's house, bringing with him a new play which he has written......about them. His purpose is to obtain their permission to proceed with production, but his wealthy, very proper parents are cautious from the outset. And there is also John's sister, Nina, to contend with, although her reservations have to do with the fact that John has given her character such a minor role. Their confrontation takes place during the ritual of the cocktail hour, and as the martinis flow so do the recriminations and revelations, both funny and poignant.
