Beijing Playhouse announced that the U.S. Embassy will sponsor the September production of the classic Americana comedy YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU. Forty five year theatre veteran David Peck has been selected to direct the production which will be presented in the theatre of YCIS Beijing.

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, the Pulitzer Prize winning marvelously funny and thought provoking stage comedy, is a hilarious clash of cultures between the rich and poor. At first, the Sycamore family seems mad, but it is not long before you realize that if they're mad, then the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. Tony, the attractive young son of the Kirbys, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore house on the wrong evening. The shock sustained by Mr. and Mrs. Kirby leads to a hilarious clash of cultures and values. And ends with a touching message.

"You Can't Take It With You characters are a multicultural cross section of people who live in America-from lovable poor Grandpa to uptight unhappy business tycoon Mr Kirby. The show debates the merits of paying taxes, the fun of 4th of July fireworks, pickled pigs feet as a delicacy, and the beauty of finding happiness in simple things like writing or ballet dancing or playing the saxophone," said Public Affairs Officer of the U.S. Embassy Tom Skipper. "The show ends with the most important message of all-that love can be found between all kinds of people who may be alike or may be different. There's one thing all Americans value-the pursuit of happiness."
YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU will open on September 3.
