Some description

Jackie, out on parole and newly sober, is determined to start anew with his childhood sweetheart Veronica, but her unrelenting coke addiction, his slick-talking AA sponsor, and the discovery of another man’s hat in his living room all threaten to derail Jackie’s tenuous progress. With passion, profanity, and genuine vulnerability, Jackie and Veronica untangle their decades of codependence as they wrestle with the painful limitations of trust, desire, and rehabilitation.

Stephen Adly Guirgis’ rapid-fire black comedy was a smash hit on Broadway, where The New York Times called it a “bruising, tragicomic apache dance of love, betrayal and indecision.”

Studio’s Subscription Season is the core of our programming, offering an uncommonly rich repertoire of provocative contemporary writing from around the world and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. 


Affecting and seductively funny…seamlessly directed by Serge Seiden
