You Can't Take It With You

 

By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

 

 

Freedom, love, and fireworks collide in this hilarious and heartwarming comedy.

 

When Alice Sycamore’s fiancé accidentally brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dine at the artistically offbeat Sycamore home, the shock sustained by the Kirbys shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question. Tony’s attempts to keep the families together are hampered by the strange activities of the Sycamore household, such as the fireworks factory in the basement, the printing press set up in the parlor, and Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector when he tells him he doesn’t believe in the income tax. This classic comedy from the 1930’s is the only play with a film adaptation to win both the Pulitzer Prize for Best Play and the Academy Award for Best Picture!

 

Gina Foster and Jon MacIntyre star as the engaged couple whose romance is hindered by their wildly disparate families. Alice’s cheerfully eccentric parents are played by Cindy Hirschberg and Mike Parker, while Denise Brookson and Liam Coughlan take the roles of Tony’s straight-laced mother and father. The delightful Roger Monk plays Grandpa, the patriarch of the Sycamore household, and Ashley Chodat and Alex Ross add to the chaotic atmosphere as Alice’s ballerina-wannabe sister and xylophone-playing brother-in-law. Celeste Musseau shines as Rheba, the lovable maid, and Jean-François Thivierge plays her out-of-work boyfriend. The fine cast is rounded out by Daniel Sotelo, Malcolm Stead, Sean Mawhinney, Sarah Harlow and Bev Pride as an assortment of eccentric hangers-on to the Sycamore clan.  Don’t miss this delightful play, the perfect laugh-out-loud finale for the Vagabond Players’ season.
