You Can't Take It With You

By Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman

You Can't Take It with You, set during the Depression, is on the surface, the story of star-crossed lovers, Alice Sycamore and Tony Kirby. Alice lives with her eccentric family, headed by the venerable Grandpa Martin Vanderhof, who doesn't pay income taxes because he doesn't believe in them. Their house is alive with the idiosyncratic pursuits of each of its members; Penny distractedly types away at a novel, Essie dances spontaneously through the house, and Paul works in the basement manufacturing fireworks. When Tony, son of conservative banker Anthony Kirby, brings his parents to meet Alice's family, the clash of values explodes with humorous and life-changing results.

Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman received the Pulitzer Prize for this play, which opened in 1936 and ran for 837 performances on Broadway. They sold the film rights to Columbia Pictures, and the movie won the 1938 Academy Award for Best Picture.
