​A progressive white couple’s proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family—especially in 1967. But they’re surprised to find they aren’t the only ones with concerns about the match, and it’s not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the Draytons’ idyllic San Francisco terrace.  TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

The talented cast includes Michael Ray, Grace Bryan, Brandy Durham, Gloria Ware, Abigail Hunger, David Girard, Tongie Davis, and Bob Gerard, all under the direction of Curtis J. Williams.

Contains strong and mature language.
