The Motherf**ker with the Hat

by Stephen Adly Guirgis

Directed by Jenny Beth Snyder

Assistant Directed by Kelly Teaford

May 31 – June 3, 2017. The Irma Sandrey Theatre

Synopsis: Jackie, a former drug dealer, has just been released from prison and is living with his high school sweetheart, Veronica. Jackie is enrolled in the AA program and is drug free with the help of his sponsor, Ralph D. When Jackie comes home having finally snagged a job, he and his libido are ready to celebrate. But, when Veronica jumps into the shower to get ready, Jackie notices a hat sitting in the room that isn’t his. He then accuses Veronica of having an affair and, though she vehemently denies it, the inexplicably present hat causes a huge rift between them. Jackie’s discovery puts into motion a series of further discoveries that unravel the fabric of love and trust that weaves a community together. As his relationships to those he loved and trusted most dissolve before his eyes, Jackie has to decide whether he is truly ready to give up his vices in order to move into a brighter future.

COVID-19

Dear Students and Prospective Students,

As news of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to develop, we wanted to take time to reassure our community that The Lee Strasberg Theatre & Film Institute is monitoring circumstances on a regular basis. We are committed to the well-being and education of our students, faculty and staff. Following in step as other universities and schools, we have transitioned to holding classes remotely in ways that are meaningful.

The Spring 2020 term will begin on April 20th.

These are unique times worthy of serious thought and implementing measures of caution. We trust that our Community will, as always, join together, to find new ways to collaborate, innovate, and continue doing the work we care so deeply about.

Please be sure to follow us on social media for events and updates during this time where we're all Safer at Home.
