This Pulitzer Prize-winning play celebrates the families we make and the risks we take.

With only days to go until Memphis’s annual “Hot Wang Festival,” things are heating up in Cordell’s kitchen. He and his crew are prepping to take home the crown when his boyfriend’s nephew shows up at the front door… Over the course of one weekend, the fate of the competition — and their relationships — is called into question. Will the crew make it to the festival? Will they make it at all?

The Hot Wing King runs February 29 through March 24 at Hartford Stage. Tickets: HartfordStage.org.
