The Man Who Came to Dinner
Comedy in Three Acts by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman
February 11-27, 2011
RLT Sutton Main Stage Theatre (Reserved Seating)
While on his way to dinner at a suburban family's home, Sheridan Whiteside, an insufferably arrogant radio personality, accidentally falls and breaks his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow, during which Whiteside monopolizes the living room and, along with an offbeat cast of characters who come to visit him, proceeds to drive his hosts round the bend! "He would have his mother burned at a stake if that was the only way he could light his cigarette!" says his secretary, Maggie.
This hilariously witty satire, first produced by Raleigh Little Theatre during the 1941-1942 season, contains caricatures of many famous celebrities, including Alexander Woollcott, Gertrude Lawrence, Noël Coward, and Harpo Marx. (Kaufman wrote many of the scripts for the Marx Brothers' movies.)
