Laughter is on the menu in ‘The Man Who Came to Dinner’

By on August 21, 2019

It’s the middle class versus the elites in Kaufman and Hart’s uproarious comedy “The Man Who Came to Dinner,” to be staged at Ephrata Performing Arts Center (EPAC), 320 Cocalico St., Sept. 5 through 14.

An instant hit when it opened on Broadway in 1939, the play has gone on to be one of the most performed American comedies. A film version was released in 1942 starring Bette Davis. “The Man Who Came to Dinner,” as it is so aptly named, is a comedy play about a dinner guest who long overstays his welcome. Although he originally was forced into bed-rest due to injury, he soon makes himself at home and begins meddling in his hosts’ personal lives. Christmastime is a time for giving freely, and Mr. Sherry Whiteside is freely giving his opinion and insults to the Stanley family, who are stuck with him.

Directed by EPAC veteran actor Kenneth J. Seigh this production of “The Man Who Came to Dinner” stars a virtual who’s who of EPAC regulars.
