Part Pygmalion, part Busby Berkley, part self-help lexicon, Stop Hitting Yourself borrows from the plots of 1930's musicals to dig deep into the contemporary conservative dilemma: how to honor steely individualism without disavowing the virtue of charity -- all the while tap-dancing around a queso fountain. Commissioned by LCT3, Stop Hitting Yourself is a world premiere.

An ensemble-based theater collective, Rude Mechs (Austin, TX) has created a mercurial slate of original theatrical productions that represent a genre-defying cocktail of big ideas, cheap laughs, and dizzying spectacle. They perform their productions at their home base in Austin, Texas, as well as nationally and internationally. Rude Mechs productions seen previously Off-Broadway include Dionysus in 69 and Method Gun.
