THE STORY


It’s 1960. Ashford, Georgia. Tom Collins is the drink of choice. Dean Martin’s on the radio. Everyone’s driving a Cadillac, and Suzanne Wellington is about to turn 40. Four couples gather to celebrate the big day — old college buddies who’ve known one another for decades. But even best friends keep secrets, and over the course of this evening's party, a few of those are bound to be revealed... from a political scandal, to a hidden pregnancy; a secret love affair, and a business' corruption.

Come, explore, and be a fly on the wall for all the juicy drama. "Mad Men" meets "Desperate Housewives" in this one-of-kind, voyeuristic theater.
