  1. Mesquite Arts Theatre presents "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?"

    February 14, 2020, 8:00 PM - March 1, 2020, 10:00 PM @ Black Box Theatre inside the Mesquite Arts Center

    (Based on the screenplay by William Rose) Performances: February 14 – March 1, 2020; A progressive white couple’s proud liberal sensibilities are put to the test when their daughter brings her black fiancé home to meet them in this fresh and relevant stage adaptation of the iconic film Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Blindsided by their daughter’s whirlwind romance and fearful for her future, Matt and Christina Drayton quickly come to realize the difference between supporting a mixed-race couple in your newspaper and welcoming one into your family--especially in 1967. But they’re surprised to find they aren’t the only ones with concerns about the match, and it’s not long before a multi-family clash of racial and generational difference sweeps across the Drayton’s’ idyllic San Francisco terrace. At the end of the day, will the love between young Joanna and John prevail? With humor and insight, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner begins a conversation sure to continue at dinner tables.
