A Fine Affair: The Cotillion
Tue, April 25, 2017, 8:30 PM – 9:30 PM CDT
Welcome to high society where the expectations are low.
Set against the backdrop of a cotillion, "A Fine Affair" is a one act play that follows the Desselles, a distinguished southern family, as they prepare for the customary introduction of their daughter to society in a formal debutante presentation, while we explore the dynamics of the family and their modern take on antiquated traditions and values. Meet Charles Desselle: A well-to-do gospel producer who finds himself stranded backstage at his daughter's cotillion with an embittered ex-wife, a loving yet socially inept new wife, and his daughter's inquisitive BFF and aloof escort. Tensions build as they all wait for the event to start with each scene unveiling new secrets about the characters.
