You Can't Take it with You
“You’ve got all the money you need. You can’t take it with you. And what’s it got you? Same kind of mail every morning, same kind of deals, same kind of meetings, same dinners at night, same indigestion. Where does the fun come in? Don’t you think there ought to be something more…?”
You Can’t Take It with You introduces the freethinking Sycamore Family and the pandemonium that unfolds when their daughter Alice’s fiancé brings his conservative, straight-laced parents to dinner on the wrong night. Will her firework-making father, manuscript-typing mother, amateur candy-making ballerina sister, xylophone playing brother-in-law and patriarch herpetoculturist grandfather blend with fiancé Tony’s sophisticated family?
