I've read this play many times and have been lucky enough to see it performed live. It is my favorite play (and I have read enough to judge) because it has such a 'hit you in the head with a 'don't be stupid' stick' message but manages to convey its message in such a hilarious way! Alice's family is hysterical but they also make the Kirby's (and the reader) realize what is really important in life: love and happiness, not slaving away at a 9 to 5 for the stake of making a lot of money that you will inevitably leave behind anyway! Read the play and enjoy!

YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU first opened on Broadway in 1936 - but it's still one of the funniest, most heart-warming comedies ever written. I've performed in it twice, and recently did a round-robin readthrough with some other theatre folks - and we laughed all the way through. You can't NOT fall in love with the Sycamore family and their somewhat kooky friends, from a Russian ballet teacher to a dipsomaniac actress (and those are the more "normal" ones!)

this play was writen during the geat depression to cheer poeple. although the humor is somewhat outdated it is still a good book. it would be funnier if you saw it preformed rather than just reading it.
