Description A celebrated comedy, You Can't Take It With You is one of the most popular and successful plays of modern times. At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it not long before we realise that if they are made the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirby's. The plot shows how Tony, attractive son of the Kirby's, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening. The trauma sustained by all concerned when the two families meet (The visit actually culminates in everyone spending the night in gaol) shows that Alice and Tony's marriage is out of the question.
