Forge Theatre Presents: THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER

by Patricia Bradford

This November, Forge Theatre will present THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER. Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the home of the Stanleys, slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow. The Stanley living room is monopolized by the irascible invalid; ex-convicts are invited to meals; and transatlantic calls bring a $784 phone bill. The arrival of strange gifts from his friends further destroys domestic tranquility. It would take a stoical housewife to harbor penguins in her library, an octopus in her cellar, and 10,000 cockroaches in her kitchen. When Maggie, his secretary, falls in love with the reporter, Bert Jefferson, Whiteside summons a glamorous actress, Lorraine, to win the affections of the young man. A comedy of errors ensues!

THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER runs November 1-2, 8-10*, 15-17* (*matinees on the 10th and 17th are at 2pm; all other performances are at 8pm). Tickets are $16.00 for adults and are available at or by calling 610-935-1920. Located at 241 1st Avenue, Forge Theatre provides high-quality, year-round live theatrical entertainment in the heart of Phoenixville.
