Written by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
This Pulitzer Prize-winning classic by the team of Kaufman and Hart is perhaps the greatest American comedy ever written.
Alice Sycamore must introduce her fiancé's straight-laced family to her rather more eccentric family. When the wildly different families meet, the worlds of the wealthy, uptight Kirbys and the off-kilter Sycamores collide. At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder.
