Ethics and the Theater will present: The Cocktail Hour by A.R. Gurney

It’s a fall evening in the mid-1970s in Upstate New York, and the family — elderly parents, middle-aged son and daughter — have gathered for drinks and light conversation before dinner. But the prospect of the son’s new play, whose manuscript lies on the coffee table, transforms the banter to barbs spiked with wit as dry as the gin.

Come at 6:30 pm for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Betsy Ungar.
