Sheridan Whiteside, having dined at the home of the Stanleys, slips on their doorstep, breaking his hip. A tumultuous six weeks of confinement follow. The Stanley home is monopolized by the irascible invalid; ex-convicts are invited to meals; friends stop by for visits, and penguins, cockroaches, and an octopus-------gifts from around the world------make it into the home.
When Maggie Cutler, Whiteside's secretary, falls in love with a local newspaper man, Bert Jefferson, and plans to resign, Whiteside summons a glamorous actress, Lorraine Sheldon, to win Jefferson's affections.
The situation spins out of control when Maggie catches on to Whiteside's plan, and solicits the help of friends in an attempt to out maneuver her employer.
Don't miss the "chess match" going on between Whiteside and Maggie and the bizarre happenings that take place throughout the production.
