The SSLI HS Drama Club is pleased to present the acclaimed comedy 

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU


by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman 
Directed by Joan Freeman Cohen

 

You Can't Take It With You is the story of the zany Sycamore  household where every family member pursues just what he or she pleases. Grandpa collects snakes, his daughter Penny thinks she is a playwright because someone delivered a typewriter to her home by mistake. Her husband Paul makes firecrackers in his basement with the help of Mr. De Pinna, an iceman who showed up at the Sycamore doorstep one day and never left. Their daughter, Essie, imagines that she's a prima ballerina even though her Russian teacher Kolenkhov whispers "Confidentially, she steeenks!".  Essie's husband, Ed  who'd rather play a xylophone than work, spends his free time selling Essie's candy and printing  anarchistic slogans. The one normal member of the household is Alice Sycamore in love with wealthy Tony Kirby. Naturally, when the stuffy, aristocratic Kirbys come to the Sycamores for dinner, the event is a disaster. Will this mean the end of Tony and Alice's romance? Also thrown into this mix are a bunch of FBI agents, the Internal Revenue, a drunk actress and a former Grand Duchess from Russia. Somehow, all these characters come together to create a wonderful evening of hilarity and delight. The play won a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 for its excellence.
