STAG NIGHT by Phillips Rogers


Email this review


A faithful, if flat-toned, cross section of a stag night at a private club, from the kitchen to the entertainers to the members, in all its expensive shoddiness, dreary dissolution. There is Bill Edson, the President, 65 and ready to revive his lust for Fatima, an aging seven-veils' dancer; there is Viola and her violin keyed to arouse sex rather than art; there is Chadwicke, the club wolf, whose offensive is stalemated by protective colleagues; and all the others, downstairs and up, momentarily involved in the progress of the evening's entertainment which is -- all in all -- a sorry, second-rate affair.
