Drinking In America

Our Summer production of Drinking In America will be directed by Mary Bremer. Ms. Bremer directs up to ten plays a year for The Theatre Company and Detroit area professional theatres. She has won all of Detroit's major acting and directing awards and is the director of the Dearborn Youth Theatre. She made her HFC directing debut with Vital Signs, Summer 2011. She was recently nominated for a Wilde Award for her ensemble work in Moonlight and Magnolias at the Jewish Ensemble Theatre.

Eric Bogosian looks at what turns people on - alcohol, drugs, sex, power - and savagely dissects their willing intoxication. The result is a blisteringly funny series of monologues, portraits of people who have gotten high on hedonism being peddled as the American dream. ''Drinking in America'' is a wild, nightmarish ride through an America where success can excuse a lot of faults. It's an unforgettable journey made all the more disturbing because of the laughter the audience encounters along the way.
