THE WILD PARTY

Genre: Drama
by Andrew Lippa

Adapted from a book-length poem written in and about the Roaring Twenties, The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville couple whose relationship is marked by vicious behavior and recklessness, mirroring the times in which they live. They decide to throw a party to end all parties, inviting an assortment of people living on the edge for one wild evening in their Manhattan apartment. During the long night of decadence, relationships are forged and torn apart, and one party-goer's life comes to a violent end. Will any of these revelers find the light of hope at the end of this dark night?
