About This Show

Caffeine Theatre presents the second production in their 2005-2006 season, T.S. Eliot’s The Cocktail Party. Evoking both the modern anguish of “The Wasteland” and the transcendence of “Four Quartets,” Eliot’s witty verse comedy won the Tony Award for Best Play at the 1950 New York premiere. A mysterious guest at a cocktail party leads a curious young socialite and a married couple on the rocks to depths beyond their urbane lives. Eliot received a Nobel Prize for literature while writing “The Cocktail Party,” an “authentic modern masterpiece” (NY Post) about the choices that make life meaningful.

Artistic director Jennifer Shook helms the production.
