Description:

The Cocktail Party is a play by British playwright T. S. Eliot that first premiered in Edinburgh in 1949 and on Broadway one year later. Focusing on a troubled married couple that settles their problems and moves on with their life with the help of a mysterious stranger who attends a cocktail party with them, it explores themes that are common in many of Eliot’s works. These include the isolation of the human condition, and the power of Christian sacrifice to further the life of the community as a whole. Although it starts out seeming to be a satire of traditional British drawing room comedies, over the course of the play it takes on the tone of a darker philosophical study of human relations.—supersummary.com.

Author Bio for Eliot, T. S. (Thomas Stearns)

Author Image

Thomas Stearns Eliot, better know as T.S. Eliot (1888–1965) was an American poet and dramatist. He exercised a strong influence on Anglo-American culture from the 1920s until late in the twentieth century. English poetry was revitalised through his experimentation. He threw out the old and created his own style.

The publication of Four Quartets led to his recognition as the greatest living English poet and man of letters, and in 1948 he was awarded both the Order of Merit and the Nobel Prize for Literature.--Encyclopaedia Britannica.
