You Must Wear a Hat

    I got to see a staged reading of this at Kitchen Dog Theater, and it has haunted me since then in the best way. It's one of the most heart-wrenching two-handers I've ever experienced. An exquisite diorama of reaching out in loneliness, the intimacy of trading stories & secrets, and what the world could have to offer at the end of it. It's funny, desperate, rich, and clings to hope / joy / wonder. This play is a gift.

    One of the most cogent explorations of love, this play isolates the viewer in a melancholy state, stripping away our defenses and opening us up to the potential for total vulnerability. Funny, strange, and hopeful, one can't help but feel the play is an act of forgiveness, a truly rare catharsis.

    Theatrical and nuanced, this play rings the alarm about climate change and the great barrier reef while delivering funny, heartbreaking, achingly drawn characters.
