You Can’t Take It With You introduces us to the Sycamore family, a happily eccentric gang of snake collectors, cunning revolutionaries, ballet dancers and skyrocket makers.
But when the youngest daughter brings her fiancé and his buttoned-up parents over for dinner, that’s when the real fireworks start!
Originally performed in 1936 on Broadway, You Can’t Take It With You is a comedic play for the ages and continues to be revived in productions across the globe. Written by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, the play received a Pulitzer Prize in 1937 and was adapted into a 1938 film starring Lionel Barrymore and James Stuart, and directed by Frank Capra.
