DESCRIPTION

A progressive white couple’s liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic Sidney Poitier film, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, they quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family–especially in 1967. Her parents aren’t the only ones with concerns about the match, and it’s not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the family’s idyllic San Francisco terrace. At the end of the day, will the love between the young mixed-race couple prevail? With humor and insight, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner begins a conversation sure to continue at dinner tables long after the curtain comes down.
