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. He wants to obtain their permission to proceed with production, but his wealthy, very proper parents are cautious from the outset. For them the theatre is personified by the gracious, comforting era of the Lunts and Ina Claire, and they are disturbed by the bluntness of modern plays. 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 confrontations take place during the ritual of the cocktail hour. As the martinis flow so do the recriminations and revelations. Both funny and poignant, but how are things resolved? You’ll have to see the play to find out.

Auditions:      Sunday and Monday, December 8th and 9th @ 7pm at Theatre West   2F/2M

SAVANNAH SIPPING SOCIETY   by Jesse Jones, Nichols Hope, & Jamie West

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Randa, a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment. Dot, still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch—and all alone. Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye, a good ol’ Texas gal, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her tom-cattin’ husband to a twenty-three-year-old dental hygienist. Also new to town, Jinx, a spunky ball of fire, offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. The words fly as the martinis go down for an evening of rollicking fun.
