GUESS WHO’S COMING TO DINNER
By TODD KREIDLER
Based on the screenplay Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner by WILLIAM ROSE
It is 1967 in San Francisco, California. Joanna is surprising her parents with a visit home and a fiancé. Making that first introduction to the parents is never easy, and even more so when the whirlwind romance is set against the backdrop of the ’60s and involves a young mixed-race couple. Both families are forced to reckon with their ideas and prejudices in the face of pending nuptials. This new and timely adaptation of the classic movie, starring Sidney Potier, Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy, still rings true today and ultimately provides touching moments and hilarious comedy.
