“The Man Who Came to Dinner” November 2009

In this classic 1939 comedy by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, the acerbic Sheridan Whiteside, theatre critic, lecturer, and radio personality, arriving to dine at the home of the prominent Stanley family in a small Midwestern town, slips on their doorstep and injures his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow, during which Whiteside monopolizes the living room and takes over the Stanley household. Before it’s over, the outrageous has become commonplace. This large cast comedy features a wonderful spread of Gunn Theatre performers playing a most extravagant array of eccentric characters. Come join the fun!

–Director, James Shelby
