Emerald Coast Theatre Company Presents The Wet & The Dry

The Last Night of Prohibition, with Joe the Bartender Emerald Coast Theatre Company (ECTC) presents The Wet & The Dry: The Last Night of Prohibition, with Joe the Bartender, written and performed by Bruce Collier, February 20 at 7.30 p.m. An audience walks into a bar…and meets Joe the Bartender. We’re in a speakeasy somewhere in Cincinnati. It’s December 4, 1933, nearly midnight. At the stroke of 12, the Noble Experiment that was Prohibition will come to its legal end. After nearly 13 years, a fellow can buy a beer, or a whiskey, without having to look over his shoulder. Joe has been there, done that, and before he closes, he’d like to share a story or two. About saloons, temperance, human nature, the United States government, and what all these Whoops and Jingles might have meant. Join Bruce Collier for “The Wet & The Dry,” his fourth Storyteller Series play for Emerald Coast Theatre Company. His previous three shows, “Three Palaces at Yalta,” “The Fall of April,” and “Winston Churchill: Through the Storm” all had their world premieres at ECTC.

Nathanael Fisher, co-founder and producing artistic director of ECTC says, “Take a trip back in time as Joe the Bartender tells stories of a time when “grabbing a drink” could earn you time in the clink.”
