A comedy based on stories by Clarence Day
Dramatized by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse
Directed by Sarah May
A loveable curmudgeon stands at the center of this charming comedy that pokes gentle fun at the art of parenting. Set in New York City in the late 1880’s, Life with Father’s Clarence Day is a patriarch who rules with an iron fist — but mother knows best!
BACKGROUND ON THIS SHOW: Life with Father is based on a series of stories written by Clarence Day, Jr., which were first published in The New Yorker. The stories are the semi-autobiographical depictions of the writer’s father, Clarence Day, Sr., and depict him as a benevolent despot who clashes with his family over all matters. The stories were adapted for the stage by Howard Lindsay and Russel Crouse (with Lindsay himself playing the role of “Father” in the original Broadway production). Opening in 1939, the play closed in 1947 after 3,224 performance — which to this very day makes Life with Father the longest-running non-musical play in Broadway history. A popular 1947 film adaptation of the play starred William Powell as Clarence (“Father”) and Irene Dunne as Vinnie (“Mother).
