Funny indeed—not to mention surprising, disturbing and poignant…dark, rich comedy…By not putting characters or their dilemmas in neat boxes, Guirgis gives us, in HAT, a slice of hard life that's as provocative as it is absorbing.

Fresh from prison and trying to stay clean and sober, Jackie must deal with the complications of a still-addicted girlfriend, his untrustworthy sponsor, and an unwanted admirer in this funny and unvarnished look at a group of street-wise New Yorkers who make a simple love triangle look tame. A hugely popular and critical hit when it played on Broadway starring comedian Chris Rock, this “unromantically romantic comedy,” deals with issues as varied as love, addiction, friendship, trust, and deceit.  Recovery has never been funnier, or more heart-breaking.
