The Cocktail Party
    By TS Eliot

    19:30, Sat 28th February 2009 - Tue 3rd March 2009 at Sidney Sussex Chapel
    Lent Week 6 to Week 7

    "Finding out who you really are." When the party's over one mysterious guest will force Edward and Lavinia to realise the futility and tragic necessity of their marriage. The couple's realisation has consequences for their friends, especially Edward's mistress Celia, who must confront the potentially vacuous reality of a life lived alone.

    Eliot's darkly comic play progresses from what seems a light satire of the traditional British drawing room comedy into a bleaker, thought-provoking treatment of human relations.
