The Man Who Came To Dinner
Wed 6th December - Sat 9th December
‘The Man Who Came To Dinner’
by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Having dined at the home of the Stanleys in small town America, famous radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on ice on their doorstep, breaking his hip. A tumultuous few weeks of confinement follow.
The Stanleys’ living room is monopolised by the irascible invalid and his increasingly bizarre friends and entourage; a glamorous actress and an eccentric scientist arrive to comfort ‘poor dear Sherry’; life prisoners from the local jail are invited to lunch; gifts of penguins and an Egyptian mummy case are delivered… Amidst this chaos, love blossoms, tempers become increasingly frayed and devilish schemes are hatched as Whiteside ensures everyone dances to his tune. By Christmas Day Ernest Stanley has had enough… This fast-paced and clever play is filled with wonderful characters, witty dialogue and is the perfect Christmas treat.
At the Barn Theatre, Southwick Street, Southwick, BN42 4TE
