The Cocktail Party by TS Eliot (Dec 15-17, 2016)

The Cocktail Party is a drawing room comedy written by TS Eliot.  Eliot wanted to bring back to the theatre its poetic roots – something that he felt it had lost.  The Cocktail Party is written in free verse, and treads in two worlds, existing simultaneously in the drawing room of Edward Chamberlayne in early 20th Century London, and the classic poetic theatrical world of Ancient Greece, Rome, and Elizabethan England.  It was TS Eliot’s most successful play during his lifetime, winning the 1950 Tony Award for best play.
