This 1930s comedy of manners centers around a young man who refuses to adapt his lifestyle to please his future father-in-law. Although he is engaged to a girl of great wealth and social standing, he refuses to “make good” with her father, preferring to enjoy life as a holiday and an independent venture to happiness. In the end the girl’s sister, realizing that the young man is right and her family wrong, confesses that she is in love with him and chooses to marry him.
An active director in Kansas City, Ade Brand’s Kansas City Repertory Theatre credits include Master Class and All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, along with nine seasons leading the casts of A Christmas Carol. She has directed several productions for the Lyric Opera of Kansas City including Don Pasquale, Don Giovanni and HMS Pinafore.
