Bach's Coffee Cantata depicts a confrontation between a father and his coffee-addicted daughter. As coffee addiction is now prevalent, we take the Coffee Cantata into the 1960s and the use of marijuana by "flower children". Our father's moral standing is dubious as he is addicted to whiskey and cigars. But all's well that ends well. Is everybody happy because the wedding cake was baked with some hashish? Come to our show and find out.
