Want to attend dinner filled with family drama, humor and chaos, all for the sake of young love? Then be sure to check out the Williamsburg Players’ production of “You Can’t Take It With You.”
Jessi DePette, Williamsburg Players spokeswoman, said the story is a little bit like Romeo and Juliet.
“It’s a crazy, wild family, and the one sane daughter decides to bring her boyfriend over for dinner with his parents,” DePette said.
The daughter’s family is made up of many colorful characters including a father who blows up fireworks in the basement and a grandfather who has a passion for raising snakes, according to DePette.
DePette said people should come out to see the play because it is a classic comedy that’s fun for the whole family to watch.
“‘You Can’t Take It With You’ is for any family that has a crazy Christmas Holiday they just finished and they want to know somebody has it worse,” DePette said. “And of course if you’re just looking for a weekend with a good laugh, a feel-good ending, this is what you can expect”
