SYNOPSIS: Beautiful young Philadelphia socialite Tracy Lord is about to marry self-made man George Kittredge, but when her ex-husband, as well as a writer and photographer assigned to cover her wedding all show up at the same time, things start to get complicated.
LANGUAGE: Nothing stronger than a few exclamatory oaths (“damn,” “hell,” and “Good Lord.”)
SMOKING AND DRINKING: The Philadelphia Story was written in the 1930s, and many of the characters in the play smoke and drink. Tracy drinks too much champagne on the eve of her wedding, and this causes several of the plot complications.
FOR WHICH AUDIENCES?: The Philadelphia Story is suitable for all audiences, including children aged 10 and up. Younger children might be bored by it.
RATING: If it were a movie, The Philadelphia Story would be rated “PG.”
