Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

April 24 - May 12

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner
Written by Todd Kreidler
 
Wednesday, April 24 – Sunday, May 12, 2019
A progressive white couple’s proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic film, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between reading about and supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family–especially in 1967. It’s not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference erupts. At the end of the day, will love prevail?
 
Performance times are Wednesday and Sunday matinees at 2pm. Evening performances are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30pm, Friday and Saturday at 8pm. There will be one Thursday matinee.
