+ The Country Club

3 Male, 4 Female

Douglas Carter Beane Price: $7.50

++ 25% DISCOUNT ++

Soos, young, witty and charmingly neurotic, retreats from a failed marriage to her upper-class hometown

As party after party unfolds, the getaway weekend gives way to a year, and ultimately the rest of her life

Brittle conversation is bandied about, and Soos is reunited with her one-time boyfriend, the ever charming Zip

She also returns to her circles of old friends ...

The highly strung party planner Froggy

The wry and sarcastic Pooker

And the drunken good ol’ boy Hutch

But cracks soon begin to show in the veneer

Zip falls in and out of an easy relationship with Soos

He starts an affair with Hutch’s nouveau wife

Lives are casually destroyed and tragedies are discussed without being mentioned.

As Pooker observes between cocktail sips, "We all have our little stories and nobody brings them up. That’s what’s known as community spirit."

REVIEWS

"The Country Club is Beane's best work, a Restoration comedy for today…" ~ NY Post

"Beane takes aim at young WASPs and their social rituals — and in turning from bees to WASPs, he has lost none of his sting … bright and effervescent" ~ NY Daily News

"Mr Beane has the ear of both the natural dramatist and the inspired satirist, often bringing a transforming poetic sparkle to the conventions of WASP-speak...a dialogist of refreshing grace and bite..." ~ NY Times
