Kitchen Dog Theater presents THE MOTHERF**KER WITH A HAT by Stephen Adly Guirgis
"Hysterical and Irreverent" The New Yorker
The Play: Things are looking up for recovering alcoholic Jackie and his girlfriend Veronicauntil Jackie spots another man's hat in their apartment and embarks on a sublimely incompetent quest for vengeance. Fast-paced and uproarious, THE MOTHERF**KER WITH A HAT is a gleefully foul-mouthed look at modern love and other addictions.
The Playwright: Stephen Adly Guirgis is a longtime member of NYC's LAByrinth Theater Company. His plays have been produced on five continents and throughout the United States. They include: the extended, sold-out run of THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, OUR LADY OF 121st STREET (named one of the ten best plays of 2003; Lucille Lortel, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle Best Play Nominations), JESUS HOPPED THE A TRAIN (Edinburgh Fringe First Award, Olivier Nomination as London's Best New Play, Barrymore Award, Detroit Free Press Best Play Award), and IN ARABIA WE'D ALL BE KINGS (Ten Best of '99, TimeOut New York, critics pick, TimeOut London).
