The Motherf**ker with the Hat
Teatro Paraguas closes its 13th season with Stephen Adly Guirgis gritty hard-hitting comedy The Motherf**ker With The Hat, which originally premiered at Broadway's Ge-rald Schoenfeld Theatre on April 11, 2011.  

Described as "a high-octane verbal cage match about love, fidelity and misplaced ha-berdashery, the story is about struggles with addiction, friendship, love, and the chal-lenges of adulthood. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He's also still in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie's too-smooth, slightly slippery sponsor. He's married to the bitter and disaffected Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie.  Jackie's gay cousin, Julio, tries to provide the ballast  to keep total chaos at bay.

"Guirgis, a brilliant comedic talentalso has an original and knowing take on class, par-ticularly as it plays out among the bottom-of-the-barrel working-class poor Guirgis' characters are frustrated by limitations that they're only half aware of, and that frustra-tion provides much of the painful hilarity in their dialogue, which piles miscommunication on top of misunderstanding." New Yorker

Teatro Paraguas production is directed by Rick Vargas, and the cast includes Matthew Montoya as Jackie, Noah G. Simpson as Ralph D., Madeleine Robb as Veronica, Pablo Adrián Ángeles as Julio, and Eibhlin Brennan as Victoria.

His plays have been produced both Off-Broadway and on Broadway as well as in the UK.
