THE MOTHER WITH THE HAT is a new high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity, and misplaced haberdashery from playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis. Jackie and Veronica have been in love since the 8th grade. But now, Jackie is on parole and living clean and sober under the guidance of his sponsor, Ralph D, while still living and loving with his volatile soul mate Veronica who is fiercely loving, but far from sober. Still, their love is pure. And true. Nothing can come between them - except a hat.
The creative team includes original music by Terence Blanchard, scenic design by Todd Rosenthal, costume design by Mimi O'Donnell, lighting design by Donald Holder and sound design by Acme Sound Partners.
