The Pain and the Itch in Austin

Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever.

Clay and Kelly share a perfect house and two perfect children in what seems to be a perfect life. That is until Clay’s mother, Carol (a self-proclaimed socialist), his estranged brother, Cash (a staunch Republican), and Cash‘s Eastern European girlfriend (20 years his junior) arrive for Thanksgiving dinner.

When a mysterious intruder disrupts Thanksgiving dinner, the gloves come off and an awkward situation devolves into absolute chaos. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Bruce Norris’ wickedly funny comedy of desire, deceit and family values is guaranteed to get under your skin.

Capital T is proud to present Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright Bruce Norris’ scathing satire directed by two-time Austin Critics Table Award-winning Director Mark Pickell (Killer Joe, Hunter Gatherers). The all-star cast includes Austin favorites Ken Bradley (Killer Joe), Lana Dietrich (August: Osage County), Liz Fisher (Hunter Gatherers), Indigo Rael (Exit Pursued by a Bear), Benjamin Summers (Middletown), Ben Wolfe (I ? Walmart) and introduces Sadie Dragoo as Kayla.
