Find out who’s really crazy when a pair of lovebirds bring their mismatched families together in Kaufman and Hart’s classic screwball comedy. The delightfully mad Sycamores celebrate independence, freedom from convention and merry mayhem, while the exacting Kirbys believe in rules, hard work and rigid organization.
When young Alice Sycamore falls in love with Tony Kirby, the two families are forced to sort out their differences and ultimately determine what’s really important in life. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and adapted into an Academy Award-winning film, You Can’t Take It With You has been a perennial favorite for more than 70 years.

Initially, when creating this piece I was thinking of the many wonderful details and personalities in this play. Then, reflecting on conflicts many of us are faced with when deciding which path to take, all the details became chaotic. My plan became to illustrate the fundamental dispute and reminder that “you can’t take it with you.” So bottom line, I thought this poster called for something minimal and graphic.
