Great acting by the cast. Enjoyed the writing as well. I really feel like this was a steal.

Description

_This show contains strong language and possible male nudity.

Running time is 100 minutes, with no intermission.

_ Things are on the up-and-up for recovering alcoholic Jackie and girlfriend Veronica — until Jackie spots another man’s hat in their apartment and embarks on a sublimely incompetent quest for vengeance. Fast-paced and uproarious, Mother asks probing questions about the havoc addiction wreaks. Ensemble member Anna D. Shapiro, director of the acclaimed Broadway premiere, returns to direct the Steppenwolf production.

Steppenwolf’s 2012/13 season, The Reckoning, explores the moment when we are called to account. Will our deeds be repaid? Will our secrets be revealed? Will we get what we deserve? __The Motherf**ker With the Hat __is one of five stories about what happens when the past comes knocking.

The production team for __The Motherf**ker with the Hat __includes: Todd Rosenthal (scenic design), Linda Roethke (costume design), Donald Holder (lighting design), Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design) and Terence Blanchard (original music). Additional credits include: Erica Daniels (casting), Kim Osgood (stage manager) and Christine D. Freeburg (assistant stage manager).
