Notable for its masterly blending of comedy and drama and meticulous attention to the ordinary details of everyday life, 'The Show-Off' revolves around a working class Irish family in North Philadelphia in the mid 1920's. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher and their three adult children are thrown into a state of turmoil when Amy, their middle child, brings home a preposterous suitor named Aubrey Piper. A compulsive liar with delusions of grandeur, Aubrey meets his match in Mrs Fisher, the crusty, no-nonsense matriarch of the family. A battle of wits ensues and the outcome is a vindication (of sorts!) of the American con man.

Penned by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, George Kelly, 'The Show-Off' has earned its reputation as one of a handful of classic American stage comedies that continue to "hold up" decades after being written.
