RAMSEY, N.J. -- The new group Ramsey Play Readers will perform a group script reading of "The Man Who Came to Dinner" on Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Ramsey Public Library.

The three-act comedic play by George Kaufman and Moss Hart was staged on both Broadway and London's West End. A 1942 film adaption featured Bette Davis, Ann Sheridan and Jimmy Durante.

The plot includes a dinner guest who manages to stay rather a bit longer than intended -- and meddles in everything.

Bosley Crowther of the New York Times, in his review of the film, said

Here, in the space of an hour and fifty-two minutes, is compacted what is unquestionably the most vicious but hilarious cat-clawing exhibition ever put on the screen, a deliciously wicked character portrait and a helter-skelter satire, withal.

Space is limited, so sign up at the reference desk or by calling Betsy Trum or Debbie Burnette at 201-327-1445.

The performance will begin at 1 p.m. The library is located at 30 Wyckoff Ave., in Ramsey.
