Some description

Irrepressible ex-cop Walter Washington is facing eviction, City Hall, and the recent death of his wife. Clinging to both his grievances and the palatial rent-controlled apartment he shares with his ex-con son and a ragtag surrogate family, Walter needs to shake the past—but isn’t ready to move on. Winner of the 2015 Pulitzer Prize, a boisterous and unflinching dark comedy from the playwright of The Motherfucker with the Hat.


Wildly entertaining, thought-provoking, and unflinching.


This production at Studio Theatre leaves no doubt about Guirgis’ play earned the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
