CCM Slideshows: You Can’t Take It With You

There is no better play written about a family coping through love during the Great Depression than the classic play, You Can’t Take It With You. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and adapted into an Academy Award-winning film, this gentle comedy about the eccentric Sycamore family has been a perennial favorite for more than 70 years. Life may be difficult at times, and we may not always have an easy time of it, but enjoy it all while you can, because “you can’t take it with you.”
