Who would’ve thought one hat could cause so much drama? The Motherf**ker with the Hat is a comedy about a hat that creates major complications between long-time lovers — and substance abusers — Jackie and Veronica. Though Jackie is living clean and sober after being released from prison, Veronica hasn’t kicked the habit. When Jackie finds a mysterious hat in Veronica’s apartment, it sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy their relationship. All five of the play’s characters are embroiled in a maelstrom of addiction, sex, and absurdity. One of the most interesting aspects of the story is the ill-conceived revenge plot, PURE’s Carly Ridgeway tells us. The production features PURE core members and local favorites Michael Smallwood and David Mandel and is directed by Gus Smythe.
