Motherf*cker with the Hat, The

‘I shot his hat. Dass all. And – BELIEVE ME - the motherf**ker KNEW what that was about! The problem is, the bullet went through his hat, ricko-shayed off his floor, blew out his big screen TV, and put a hole in the guy next door’s apartment who was home at the time…’  Read more …

It’s New York and Jackie’s in trouble. An ex-con struggling with addiction, he’s trying to go straight and get back with childhood sweetheart Veronica, but can he trust her? His sponsor, the outwardly pious and clean-living Ralph D. isn’t all he seems and Cousin Julio really doesn’t like him very much. Can Jackie keep it together or is he on a path to self-destruct?

Stephen Adly Guirgis’s high octane, tough-talking play about love, infidelity and survival gets its first out-of-London UK production.

The critical consensus

It’s a rare and welcome pleasure these days to be leaving the theatre mulling over the characters, and not a take-away “message”.

*****Robert Peacock, The Wee Review, 07/03/2018

Blisteringly enjoyable.

Christine Irvine, Exeunt, 09/03/2018

A strikingly self-contained show.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 10/03/2018

A cynical play which only reinforces stereotypes, in spite of some affecting moments.

****(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 12/03/2018

The quality of the performances is stellar; raw and honest, heartbreaking and tender.

****(*)Peter Callaghan, Review Sphere, 07/03/2018

Written with an undeniable, stylish fluidity, the play is a strong example of an inevitably limited genre.
