SYNOPSIS: The Draytons are a progressive white couple living in San Francisco in the heady days of 1967. Their liberal convictions are put to the test when their daughter brings home her fiancé from a whirlwind romance. He is perfect, a doctor, and an accomplished, published world renowned researcher. He is also black. The Draytons are faced with the difference between supporting the integration of races and welcoming someone of another color into your family. The situation also has to cope with objections from the other side of the racial divide as well. This is an adaption from the famous film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, which you are encouraged NOT to watch before auditions.
Notes: All character ages are stage ages, not the age of the actor. Due to the nature of the story, the racial backgrounds of the characters are set.
JOHN PRENTICE SR: 63, black. Schoolteacher. Protective and proud of his son, John, he at first strongly disapproves of the marriage as he sees it a threat to all John has worked and built for himself.
