Motherf##ker in a Hat

Posted by Carla Sammut

Jackie comes home with great news, he’s gotten a job. Veronica, his long time girlfriend, is ecstatic as it’s been a long road since Jackie got out of prison. The discovery of a man’s hat and a full ashtray in their bedroom sparks a fight and Jackie explodes out of the flat in search of the ‘motherf##ker in the hat.’

Set in New York, Motherf##ker in a Hat is full of spunk and humour – Veronica (Michelle Vergara Moore) and Jackie (Demetrios Sirilas) are perfectly cast as the hot headed couple. Jackie leans on his new age sponsor Ralph (Adam McConvell) for advice whilst relying on his cousin Julio (Mark Casamento) to clean up his messes. Casamento steals the show as Julio, the often over-looked source of consistency and unconditional love in Jackie’s life.

Motherf##ker in a Hat marks a departure from Red Stitch’s usual fare – the set design, use of projection and killer soul/dance soundtrack ups the energy and creates a pitch-perfect mood. David Bell’s direction is tight, and although it runs 20 minutes too long the production is so crisp it doesn’t sag. Recommended.

Motherf##ker in a Hat is now showing at Red Stitch Actors Theatre until July 7
