A bittersweet comedy of human errors set in Iota, East Texas. Burned out of her home, her marriage on the ropes and now keeping house in a trailer park, Patsy Tyson waitress and aspiring actress is preparing for her debut onstage opposite local community theatre 'star' Bobby Don Flowers. Arousing her ne'r do well husband Ed's suspicions, Patsy enjoys a growing attraction to this new man in her soon-to-be brand new life. Casting a wary eye on the lovebirds, Ed enlists his reluctant pal Duke to join the production and with busybody neighbor Lynette adding to the romantic complications, opening night fast approaches as they all must ultimately face their harsh realities in the light of day. With a style that takes realism to the borders of the ridiculous, Moonlight Cocktail explores human follies with an effortless and lyrical humor.
