The Man Who Came to Dinner is set in a small Ohio town in 1940. A famous, outlandish radio wit, theater and literary critic named Sheridan Whiteside has been invited to dine at the home of the wealthy factory owner, Mr. Ernest Stanley. Before Whiteside enters the house, he slips on a patch of ice outside the front door and injures his hip. Whiteside intimidates the Stanley’s with threats of legal prosecution, and they are forced to allow him to stay while he recovers. Whiteside proceeds to terrorize the Stanley’s, taking over their home and interfering with almost every aspect of their lives with hysterical results.
