  3. THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT


After their innovative and acclaimed RI premiere production of Jen Silverman’s Collective Rage: A Play In 5 Betties, Burbage Theatre Co concludes their 12th Season with Stephen Adly Guirgis’s The Motherf**ker with the Hat, directed by Trinity Rep company member Jackie Davis, director of last season’s Red Velvet by Lolita Chakrabarti. 

THE MOTHERF*CKER WITH THE HAT will be presented for 13 performances from May 30 through June 16 at Burbage Theatre Co’s Wendy Overly Studio Theatre. 

SYNOPSIS – Struggles with addiction, friendship, love, and the challenges of adulthood are at the center of the story. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He’s also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie’s too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He’s married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there’s Julio, Jackie’s cousin…a stand-up, “stand by me” kind of guy.

 

"Guirgis, a brilliant comedic talent…also has an original and knowing take on class… Guirgis’ characters are strivers who lack the language to 'pass’ in a white-collar world; they’re frustrated by limitations that they’re only half aware of, and that frustration provides much of the painful hilarity in their dialogue, which piles miscommunication on top of misunderstanding.” 

— New York Times

“It’s a tight, smart and splendidly well-made, a tough-minded, unromantically romantic comedy that keeps you laughing, then sends you home thinking.”

— Wall Street Journal

“Funny indeed—not to mention surprising, disturbing and poignant…dark, rich comedy…By not putting characters or their dilemmas in neat boxes, Guirgis gives us, in HAT, a slice of hard life that’s as provocative as it is absorbing.”

— USA Today
