The Motherf**ker with the Hat - Stephen Adly Guirgis’ high octane, tough-talking play about love, infidelity and survival gets its Welsh premiere at Sherman Theatre from 21 – 31 Mar.

Released from prison into a world of chaos Jackie finds himself struggling to stay sober and out of trouble. Back with his ex, he soon realises that it’s hard to stay true when you’re unsure of who you can trust. Don’t miss this raw and blistering play, the tightly weaved plot full of twists and revelations will keep you gripped to the very end.

A fantastic cast has been assembled for this production. You may remember Alexandria Riley from her portrayals as Kitty in How My Light is Spent and Dottie in The Cherry Orchard. She returns to our stage to take on the role of feisty Veronica and is joined by Cardiff’s own Francois Pandolfo as Jackie and Kyle Lima as Cousin Julio.

Original Broadway Production Produced by Scott Rudin, Public Theater Productions (Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director; Joey Parnes, Executive Producer), LAByrinth Theater Company, Fabula Media Partners LLC, Jean Doumanian, Ruth Hendel, Carl Moellenberg, Jon B. Platt and Tulchin Bartner/Jamie de Roy.
