North High School’s Junior Players will perform The Man Who Came to Dinner, a comedy by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, on Thursday, March 30, and Friday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. in the school auditorium at 35 Polo Rd.

In the play, Sheridan Whiteside, an eccentric and acid-tongued radio lecturer, is invited to dine at the house of the well-to-do factory owner Ernest W. Stanley and his family, in the small town of Mesalia, OH, in the 1930s. But before Whiteside can enter the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the Stanley front door and injures his hip. Confined to the house for a month, Whiteside drives his hosts mad by barking orders at everyone in sight, receiving questionable visitors, running up huge phone bills and hurling insults at anyone within earshot, wreaking havoc on the entire household with hilarious results.
