History professor George and his boozy wife, Martha, return late one Saturday night from a cocktail party at the home of the college president, Martha’s father. Martha announces that she invited another couple, newly appointed instructor Nick and his timid wife, Honey, over for a nightcap. When the younger couple arrives, the night erupts into a no-holds-barred torrent of marital angst and verbal tirades.
