Black Swan State Theatre Company presents The Motherf**ker with the Hat by Stephen Adly Guirgis 17 January – 03 February 2013 A Perth FRINGE WORLD Festival 2013 event and WA Premiere. Jackie, a petty drug dealer, is just out of prison and trying to stay clean. He’s also still passionately in love with his coke-addicted childhood sweetheart, Veronica. Ralph D. is Jackie’s smooth-talking, shifty Alcoholics Anonymous sponsor. He’s married to the jaded and sharp-tongued Victoria, who, by the way, has the hots for Jackie. And then there’s Jackie’s cousin Julio, a stand-up, “stand by me” kind of guy. When Jackie finds a man’s hat in the flat he shares with Veronica, his jealousy spirals out of control and mayhem ensues. Set on New York’s mean streets, The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a mix between a sit com, Hispanic telenovela and true crime documentary. It’s hysterical, irreverent and as foul-mouthed as it is funny. Nominated for six Tony Awards, including Best Play (2011) and three Drama Desk Awards (2011). “Don’t let the stupid title put you off. If you do, you’ll miss one of the best new plays to come to Broadway in ages.” The Wall Street Journal “The play that dares not speak its name turns out to have a lot to say, a vibrant and serious new comedy - by far the most accomplished and affecting work from the gifted Mr Guirgis.” The New York Times Venue: Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre of WA Director: Adam Mitchell Featuring: Fayssal Bazzi, Austin Castiglione, Rhoda Lopez, Kenneth Ransom, Alison van Reeken Duration: Approx. 1 hr 35 mins [no interval] Warning: Extremely frequent coarse language, explicit sexual descriptions, drug use, adult themes, possible nudity and smoking of herbal cigarettes on stage.
