When the film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner was released in 1967, race relations seemed to be undergoing a profound change in the United States. Coinciding with the national abolishment of anti-miscegenation laws, the film mirrored the cultural zeitgeist in its grounded storyline of a young white woman who shocks her supposedly enlightened parents by revealing that she is engaged to a black man. Rather than becoming an artifact of our nation’s racially divided past, unfortunately, the challenges of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner continue to pervade our culture, making this an ideal moment to revisit the piece via an acclaimed stage adaptation by playwright Todd Kreidler. Directed by Timothy Bond, the striking cast features Maeve Coleen Moynihan, JaBen Early, Sally Wingert, and David Manis. Show schedules vary, go to www.guthrietheater.com for complete times.
