"Kudos to Metropolitan...delightful musicality
...a sumptuous picture... a poignant reminder that 2016 may have more in common with 1936 than we might like to believe."

Theatre Is Easy
- Sarah Palay, Theatre Is Easy
"An urbane, delightful comedy of manners ....
a picture of the issues of the time which remain, remarkably,
many of the same we still face today."
- Brenda Repland, Eyes on World Cultures

End of Summer

by S.N. Behrman

A comedy of Society, and maybe it's undoing...

Charming and radiant oil heiress Leonie Frothingham whiles away the summer of 1936 at the seaside, where cocktails flow with the tides, and lovers come and go like mosquitoes. But with the Great Depression ravaging the country, even Leonie’s idyllic retreat is not protected from the tremors of the times.
This summer, Leonie might be shaken enough to come down to earth, but breaking away is harder than it seems, and living among the wreckage may not be so appealing as it appears from a lofty summer retreat
A comedy with subtle insight, End of Summer exposes the forces that build fortunes, tear apart families, buttress the society of American haves and have-nots, and foment the revolution waiting in the wings.
