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.
