The University of Saint Francis students will be presenting their fall play, “The Man Who Came to Dinner,” a three-act comedy by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, in November 2013.
Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., NY, the play is set in Ohio in the 1930s during the holidays. A renowned radio celebrity – Sheridan Whiteside – is invited to dinner at the home of a wealthy factory owner. Before Whiteside enters the house, he falls and hurts his hip, and ends up staying at the home to recover and consequently terrorizes the family’s lives.
