directed by Christopher Luscombe
The eccentric Bliss family -- Judith, a recently retired actress, David, a self-absorbed novelist, and their two unconventional children -- live in a world where reality slides easily into fiction. Upon entering this world, the weekend guests (a proper diplomat, a shy flapper, an athletic boxer and a fashionable sophisticate) are thrown into melodramatic scenes wherein their hosts profess emotions and react to situations that do not really exist. The comedic chaos ends only when the tortured visitors tip-toe out the door. Don’t miss Coward’s delightfully infectious comedy about a weekend getaway gone awry.
This production contains smoking.
