GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER
Written by Todd Kreidler
Wednesday, April 24 – 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?
