By George Kaufman & Moss Hart
Directed by Hank Stratton

While on a lecture tour in Ohio during a 1930’s holiday season, critic and radio personality Sheridan Whiteside slips on the steps of the prominent Stanley family home, and a tumultuous and hilarious six weeks of convalescence follows at the Stanley residence, incorporating the perfect blend of high comedy and low farce, populated by extravagant but lovable characters.
