Ricardo Chavira Leads UK Debut of THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT, Beginning Tonight at the National

Stephen Adly Guirgis's THE MOTHERF**KER WITH THE HAT is sailing across the pond this summer.

DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES Ricardo Chavira has been tapped to star in the UK premiere of the play, beginning tonight, June 10 in the National's Lyttelton Theatre. Indhu Rubasingham will direct.

Chavira will join THE GOOD WIFE's Flor de Liz Perez and original 'HAT' star Yul Vazquez, as well as Nathalie Armin, Lisa Caruccio Came and Alec Newman in the cast.

Guirgis' play premiered on Broadway in 2011 starring Chris Rock, Bobby Cannavale, Annabella Sciorra, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Vazquez. It was nominated for six Tony Awards.

The story follows Jackie, a former drug dealer newly out of prison who discovers a hat in his girlfriend Veronica's apartment and accuses her of cheating on him. Drama ensues.

Chavira's other TV credits include CASTLE, BAD TEACHER, WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, BURN NOTICE, SIX FEET UNDER and more. This will be his stage debut.
