The Man Who Came to Dinner is a classic screwball comedy, This play is set in the small town of Mesalia, Ohio in the weeks leading to Christmas in the late 1930s and involves famous ( and famously cranky) radio personality, Sheridan Whiteside, slipping on a piece of ice on the doorstep of the Stanley family and having to spend 6 tumultuous weeks recuperating in their home. The Stanley living room is monopolized by the irascible Whiteside; with ex-convicts, transatlantic calls, the arrival of strange gifts from his friends, . . . throw in a harbor penguins in the library, an octopus in the cellar, and 10,000 cockroaches in the kitchen – plus a sudden romance, what more can happen? Just tons of laughs in the 1939 classic!
