You Can’t Take It with You

By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

Directed by Missy Moore

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.  In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirby’s.  The plot shows how Tony, the attractive young son of the Kirby’s, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening.  The shock sustained by the Kirby’s, who are invited to eat cheap food, shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question.  The Sycamores, however, though sympathetic to Alice, find it hard to realize her point of view.  Meantime, Tony, who knows the Sycamores are right and his own people wrong, will not give her up, and in the end, Mr. Kirby is converted to the happy madness of the Sycamores, particularly since he happens in during a visit by an ex-Grand Duchess, earning a living as a waitress.  No mention has as yet been made of the strange activities of certain members of the household engaged in the manufacture of fireworks; nor of the printing press set up in the parlor; nor of Rheba and her friend Donald; nor of Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in income tax.

Performances run from February 17, 2023 – March 5, 2023

Join us for a special talkback following the performance on Sunday, February 26.

The Lifespan of a Fact

By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell

Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal

Directed by Renee Prince

Jim Fingal is a fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent sinking New York Magazine.  John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy – an essay that could save the magazine from collapse.  When Jim is assigned to fact-check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head-to-head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.
