Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

January 13 & January 14, 2018

Our Directors’ Showcase for the 2017-2018 Season

Adapted for the stage by Todd Kreidler from the Oscar-winning screenplay by William Rose

Old-line liberals Matt and Christina Drayton have raised their daughter Joey to think for herself and not blindly conform to the conventional. Still, they aren’t prepared for the shock when she brings home a new fiancé: African-American doctor John Prentice. While they come to grips with whatever prejudices they might still harbor, the younger folks must also contend with John’s parents, who are dead-set against the union. To complicate matters, the older couple’s disapproving cook and Christina’s bigoted business associate put in their two cents’.
