You are invited to their cocktail party.

Break our your black dresses, ties, and jackets because on August 1oth The Vintage is presenting its latest production, “The Last Cocktail Party of Venus.”  Written by Conor O’Brien, co-owner of The Vintage, this is more than a performance – it’s an experience.  Presented as a semi-interactive experience, “The Last Cocktail Party of Venus” is part storytelling, part catharsis, and partly an intoxicated mess of secrets.

Filled with an ensemble of characters trapped in the social webs that bind us all, they’re doing what everyone does at a cocktail party – performing.  Performing whatever roles they are expected to: the hostess, the unwilling partner of the hostess, the awkward friend in the corner, the social butterfly.  It’s a story of love and lies, of schemes and honesty.
