Winner of the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, You Can't Take It With You is a madcap comedy about two clashing New York families. When a member of the conservative and stiff-upper-lip Kirby family falls in love with a girl from the eccentric and happy-go-lucky Vanderhof household, the two families come together to celebrate the couple's engagement and discover their shocking differences over a wildly uncomfortable dinner discussion. Full of fast pacing and witty one-liners, the play, written by masters of comedy George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, has entertained audiences for over 70 years. Now playing at Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church in Decatur, it's every bit as endearing now as it was during the Great Depression.
Running time is two hours.
