The Cocktail Party Overview

"The Cocktail Party" is a play by T.S. Eliot which revolves around British lawyer Edward Chamberlayne and his desire to reunite with his wife, Lavinia, after she has left him. Meanwhile, Edward's mistress, Celia, hopes that now Edward will want to be with her that his wife has left him -but things seem to be out of control for some of the characters, as they seem to alternate between fate and choice in their actions. "The Cocktail Party" thus deals with themes of self-identity, choice, and the supernatural.
