An evening of intoxicating escape.

Hoping for a quiet weekend in the country with some guests, David Bliss, a novelist, and his wife Judith, a retired actress, find that an impossible dream when their high-spirited children Simon and Sorel appear with guests of their own.

A houseful of drama waits to be ignited as even the help proves helpless creating wild misunderstandings and flared tempers. The Bliss family lives up to its name as the “quiet weekend” turns into a nightmare, coming to an exhausting and hilarious finale worthy of a Feydeau farce. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions, and scandalous revelations all run riot at the most outrageous of all house parties.

Light, luminous, charming, and hilariously funny.
