The Cocktail Party Effect, a new play by Scooter Pietsch, will receive a private New York City reading April 8 at 2 PM. It is presented by producer John Yonover (Revonoy Productions).
Here’s how it’s billed: “The play tells the story of three married couples who gather to celebrate their 10th New Year’s Eve together. They originally met at the private school their kids attended and have celebrated all the milestones of childrearing as a group. Tonight, however, marks a new phase of life for them as their kids have gone off to college leaving them empty nesters. How the couples handle being alone together, after being distracted from their marriages while raising a family, sets the stage for brutally honest (and hilarious) evaluations, self-reflections and dramatic resolutions. The Cocktail Party Effect takes a look at what happens to us all after we’re ‘fired’ from the greatest job we’ve ever had… raising our children.”
The reading will take place at the Anne L. Bernstein Theater at The Theater Center at 210 West 50th Street in New York.
