The Philadelphia Story

Written by Philip Barry
Directed by Noël Hanley
Jan. 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, 26

It’s the 1930s, the Golden Age of High Society in and around Philadelphia, and Tracy Lord is society’s darling. She has it all; youth, beauty, wealth, and a handsome fiancé with a bright future in politics. But, as the hours tick down to her nuptials, her dashing and charming ex-husband and an attractive and interesting reporter arrive to make Tracy question what she really wants in a man… and why she’s about to marry a priggish snob! Will she go through with the wedding as planned?

The play was made into a famous film starring Katherine Hepburn, and is modeled on a well known local family with whom the playwright was very familiar.
