Academy Award® winner Ethan Coen returns to Atlantic with the world premiere of three one-act comedies, following the success of his hit productions Almost an Evening and Offices. In HAPPY HOUR, an embittered barfly has a theory—or two—about what the world has become. A lonely young man and lonely young woman can’t see how right they are for each other. His motel room is so ugly a business traveler wants to end it all. Your life could be worse—and these three one-act comedies show you how.
