You Can’t Take It With You

by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

The Play

The Sycamores have been happily living their zany lives in his house by Columbia University in New York for many years. This family (and their friends) are a madcap group of eccentrics, marching to the beat of their own drum, with pride and joy. But when practical young Alice Sycamore becomes engaged to her company’s Vice President Tony Kirby, the Sycamore clan must straighten up to meet the new in-laws. Disaster ensues when the Kirbys arrive at the wrong time and, despite the best laid plans, see Alice’s family in all of its crazy glory.

A madcap, idealistic comedy that reinforces the idea that you can only live life to the fullest by doing whatever makes you happy.
