A motherfucker of a show

The Motherfucker with the Hat

Stephen Lobo and Francisco Trujillo are members of a stellar team in The Motherfucker with the Hat.

My pick this week is The Motherfucker with the Hat, which is playing at the Firehall Arts Centre until Saturday, January 30.

Playwright Stephen Adly Guirgis delights in language, even as he uses fuck and shit as casually as most people use commas. And his exploration of addiction and recovery is complex.

The performances in this production are stellar. Kyra Zagorsky and Stephen Lobo will break your heart. John Cassini will lead you down a very dark rabbit hole.
