Theatre on the Square is proud to present Stephen Adly Guirgis‘ critically acclaimed MF*er with the Hat Friday, April 28th, through Saturday, May 13th.
About the show
Struggling with addiction, love, friendship and the responsibilities of being an adult are the center of MF*er With The Hat. Jackie, a petty drug dealer just out of prison. is trying to stay clean. He is still in love with his childhood sweetheart, Veronica, who is addicted to cocaine and alcohol. His sponsor in AA is Ralph D., who has his own interpretation of “the big book”–and that interpretation allows him to live his life relatively free from blame. Ralph’s wife, Victoria, is bitter about her marriage and has the hots for Jackie. Jackie has a code of behavior that his cousin, Julio, a stand up guy, is eager to help him enforce. As complications around addiction and recovery ensue, we see each character’s true colors.
What others are saying
“Don’t be deterred by the title. This 2011 play by Stephen Adly Guirgis not only confirms the rich promise of earlier work such as Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train; combining sex-farce and high seriousness, it also has an exhilarating dash and bravura that put me in mind of the movies of Pedro Almodóvar.” The Guardian
“…mashup of sitcom humor, true crime drama and telenovella romance…” Variety
