Last chance to catch the Willow Theatre Company's mounting of Kaufman and Hart's George Washington Slept Here. The show opened July 25 and runs to Saturday, Aug. 16.
This classic comedy is the result of what was the final collaboration between George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, the writing team that penned such favorites as the 1936 Pulitzer Prize-winning You Can't Take It With You and 1939's The Man Who Came To Dinner.
George... is the story of the Fullers, a family that moves to an old house in rural Pennsylvania, hoping to trade the tensions of city life for rest and relaxation in the country. Enchanted by the home in which Washington was rumored to have once slept, they get more than they bargained for when the environment proves to be less than the utopia they were expecting.
Douglas H. Dildine directs an experienced regional cast (Jerry Motta, John Epperson, Loretta Eskanazi, Jay Clifton, Sherry Al-Mufti, Kathryn DeYoung and William Stafford) in this comedic look at life in a small town.
