This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic by the team of Kaufman and Hart (The Man Who Came to Dinner, 2009) is a great American comedy. Alice Sycamore must introduce her fiancé's straight-laced family to her rather more eccentric family. When the wildly different families meet, the worlds of the wealthy, uptight Kirbys and the off-kilter Sycamores collide. At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder.
Kaufman and Hart's hilarious work features the Alley Resident Company of Actors, including Jeffrey Bean as Mr. De Pinna, James Black as Martin Vanderhof, Elizabeth Bunch as Gay Wellington, Paul Hope as Mr. Kirby, Chris Hutchison as Ed, Emily Neves as Alice, Melissa Pritchett as Essie, David Rainey as Donald, Jay Sullivan as Tony Kirby, John Tyson as Boris Kolenkhov and Todd Waite as Paul Sycamore.
