Description


It's a rare play that makes you beam from curtain to curtain, and this comedy about a zany, improbably happy family during the Great Depression accomplishes this feat.

The philosophy pursued by three generations of the Sycamore family is 'follow your bliss' and miraculously, they all live under one roof, making sweet music together while ineptly pursuing passions that range from classical ballet to the manufacture of fireworks. This is the menage into which the Sycamores relatively conventional daughter, Alice reluctantly introduces her beau, Tony Kirby, son of an uptight Wall Street bigwig and his socialite wife. When the Kirby's arrive at chez Sycamore for dinner on the wrong night, the comic collision of the two families culminates with an invading squad of G-men and exploding fireworks. So, can the lovers get together in spite of their family differences? Also, can the uptight, rich and snobbish Kirby's learn to let go and enjoy life enough to allow a happy ending?

This play packs chaos, laughs and literal fireworks into a light farce centered around a family of eccentrics, yet offers heartfelt underlying messages for us all.
