By E.L. Doctorow

A tour-de-force of language and ideas about Eighties' America, by the bestselling author of Billy Bathgate and Ragtime.

E.L. Doctorow's only play, Drinks Before Dinner revolves around a dinner party for the economically privileged. It deals with the underlying sense of the apocalypse behind the everyday decisions of an average consumer.
