Could anything as trivial as a hat ever break up true love? Intrigue unravels love in the multi-award winning hit Broadway play The Motherf**ker With the Hat, premiering at TAP Gallery Theatre on 17 April.

Fresh from rehab and under the guidance of his smooth talking sponsor Ralph D, Jackie is clean, on parole and finally ready to begin his life with his volatile soul mate Veronica, who is fiercely loving but far from sober. Their love is pure and true, and has been since the 8th grade. Nothing can come between them … until there’s a hat.

Following its 2011 Broadway season starring Chris Rock, Bobby Cannavale and Annabella Sciorra, The Motherf**ker With the Hat was nominated for six Tony Awards, three Drama League Awards, six Outer Critics Circle Awards (of which Elizabeth Rodrigues won Featured Actress in a Play), three Drama Desk Awards (Bobby Cannavale was awarded Outstanding Actor in a Play), two Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards and won the Theatre World Awards’ Lunt-Fontaine Award for Ensemble Excellence.

Written by Stephen Adly Guirgis, Workhorse Theatre Co’s hot-blooded production boasts a cast of top young Australian talent, including John Atkinson (Home and Away, McLeod’s Daughters), Troy Harrison (The Boy from Oz, Priscilla Queen of the Desert), Megan O?Connell (Much Ado About Nothing, Three Sisters), Zoe Trilsbach (Saturday Night Fever, That Pretty Pretty or The Rape Play) and Nigel Turner-Carroll (Skylight, Gallipoli), and leading director Adam Cook.
The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a high-octane, verbal cage match about love, fidelity, and misplaced haberdashery.

"The play that dare not speak its name turns out to have a lot to say…This is by far the most accomplished and affecting work from the gifted Mr Guirgis, a prolific and erratic chronicler of marginal lives." - The New York Times

“From the beginning of this elegiac, exhilarating, hundred-minute, intermissionless work…you can’t help noticing that Guirgis has shaken his habit of setting up ideas and situations for his characters to fit into; instead, full-blooded people take over and tell the story for him.” – The New Yorker

“Stephen Adly Guirgis has produced a richly embroidered script with the kind of verbal (and physical) sparring that took place between the Sharks and the Jets in West Side Story.” – The Australian

"What makes ‘Hat’ more than just a foul-mouthed, fast-moving farce is that Mr Guirgis's real subject turns out to be moral relativism... 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
