HAPPY HOUR: PLAYS ABOUT DRINKING

Genre: Comedy
Directed by Erin Roberts and Molly Thomas

Six actors, four playwrights and two directors come together for an evening of original comedic one-acts exploring the reasons we drink and the potential results.

Improbable Fiction's inaugural production, 2007's TWELFTH NIGHT, began as a collaboration amongst a group of bartenders working together in Broadway theatres. Mick Bleyer and Molly Thomas honor the company's roots by producing a collection of all-new alcohol-themed one-act plays. After receiving submissions from across the country they narrowed the field to the four works that comprise this first installment of HAPPY HOUR: Michael Baldwin's "serenDRIPity", Quinn Michael Mattfeld's "A Bar Tale OR Steve and The Other Guy", Susie Morgan's "Fate, or Something" and Molly Thomas' "The Princess and the Woodsman". These plays examine a range of situations that alcohol can incite, whether it be late-night subway meetings, post-work bar encounters, possibly ill-advised hookups or drunken fairy tales.
