The Wild Party tells the story of one wild evening in a Manhattan  apartment just before the crash in 1929. In a relationship marked by vicious behavior and recklessness (mirroring the time in which they live), Queenie and Burrs, a vaudeville dancer and a vaudeville clown decide to throw a party to end all parties.
