Acerbic and egotistical radio personality Sheridan Whiteside is invited to dinner at the home of Ernest and Daisy Stanley, a prominent and wealthy Ohio family. After slipping on ice at the Stanley's doorstep and dislocating his hip, Whiteside becomes an outrageously demanding houseguest when he is forced to recuperate in the Stanley's home.

Confined to a wheelchair, Whiteside drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolising their house and staff and entertaining bizarre guests. As Christmas nears, Whiteside soon dominates the lives of the residents and anyone who enters the household.

Directed by Jennifer Flowers, this comedy debut for final-year BFA (Acting) students brings new meaning to overstaying your welcome!
