Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
"Vibrant and surprisingly far the most accomplished and affecting work from the gifted Mr. Guirgis, a prolific and erratic chronicler of marginal lives."—The New York Times

"The most expressive cursing since Shakespeare."—The Guardian

In The Motherfucker with the Hat, Jackie, a recently paroled drug dealer, attempts a fragile balance between the addictions of love, the struggle to stay clean, and revenge for the betrayals that punctuate and maybe even facilitate his recovery.

Stephen Adly Guirgis's other plays include Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train, Our Lady of 121st Street,The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, and The Little Flower of East Orange. His play Between Riverside and Crazy won the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He is a former co-artistic director of LABryinth Theater Company. He is a creator and writer of Netflix's The Get Down.
