THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER
Attleboro Community Theatre (ACT) celebrates the 2019 holiday season with its production of THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER, written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart and directed by Lori Perry and Jeanne Smith. Set in the small town of Mesalia, Ohio, in the weeks leading up to Christmas in the late 1930s. The famously outlandish New York City radio personality Sheridan Whiteside (‘Sherry’) is invited to a well-to-do factory owner’s home for dinner with his family. But before Whiteside can enter the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the Stanleys’ front door and injures his hip. Now confined to the Stanleys’ home for weeks, Sherry drives his hosts mad due to his erratic and ridiculous behavior, leaving the family – and those who become involved – looking for any way that they can drive him out.
