By Philip Barry

Romantic comedy

The play tells the story of Philadelphia socialites Tracy Lord and C.K. Dexter Haven. Two years after their break-up, Tracy is about to re-marry successful snob Kittredge at the Lord mansion only to find the day hi-jacked by some unwelcome guests and a few family secrets. Will the marriage to Kittredge go ahead? Will Tracy ever find her ‘True Love’? And who invited her ex-husband to the party? Philip Barry’s romantic comedy gave its name to the 1940 film starring Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart before being turned into the musical High Society.
