Saybrook Stage Company performs You Can't Take It With You

You Can’t Take It With You is a hilarious comedy that celebrates non–conformity! It started with the grandfather quitting his job in the competitive business world decades ago because he was unhappy. He now spends his days catching and raising snakes, watching graduation ceremonies and doing anything else that gives him enjoyment. The other members of the household are just as eccentric from making illegal fireworks in the basement, a candy-selling ballerina, and a toga-wearing deliveryman to name just a few.

Performed at the Kate in January 2011; it was Saybrook Stage Company's first production. It ran for 3 shows over a wintery weekend in Old Saybrook. The reaction from the audience and the community was very positive and supportive.

With the Stage Manager as your guide, Thorton Wilder’s classic story of the fictional New Hampshire Community takes you on a poignant journey where you will become enthralled with the everyday life of the small New England town “in their birth, in their living and in their dying.”

Directed by John Sebastian DeNicola

12 Angry Men

"12 Angry Men", written by Reginald Rose, is a suspenseful drama that depicts a jury forced to reconsider its nearly unanimous decision by the single dissenter who sows a seed of reasonable doubt. The case at hand pertains to whether a young man murdered his own father. As deliberation unfolds so do the different personalities and prejudices that many of the jurors bring to the jury room.
