    WHAT IS THE PLAY ABOUT?

    Famed author Sheridan Whiteside possesses a sharp tongue and a sharper brain. On a lecture tour in Ohio, he slips on the ice and is confined to the home of a Stanleys. He proceeds to plunge the household into chaos, ruling the place like a czar and meddling in everyone’s love life. From crazy gifts to crazy guests to just dealing with Sheridan Whiteside himself, the Stanley family is in for a wild time.
