The HUB Theatre - A dynamic circle of story, art, and community.

By Lauren Yee
Directed by Shirley Serotsky

April 5 - 28, 2013

John Swayze Theatre

In A Man, His Wife, and His Hat we meet Hetchman, a retired hatmaker—perhaps the finest hatmaker ever—who loves his hat more than anything. Except maybe his wife. He loves her too. When BOTH go missing, Hetchman vows to find them, and will stop at nothing to do so. But, can he muster the strength and energy to leave the comfort of his armchair? A fantastical series of events threatens to derail his endeavor. In Yee’s time-bending, mind zapping world, people float away and hats serenade their wearers in ethereal clarinet melodies. Lost memories are sealed inside jars. And life is accompanied by a talking wall and a hungry golem. In this world where anything can happen, only the force of love can hold you to the ground. Following a successful staged reading in 2012, The Hub Theatre is thrilled to present this fully staged DC Premiere of this klezmer-inspired love triangle between a man, his wife ... and his hat.

Due to language, A Man, His Wife, and His Hat is suitable for ages
16 and up.
