The Hatmaker's Wife
Directed by Rachel Chavkin
In Lauren Yee's whimsical and poignant new play The Hatmaker's Wife, a young woman moves in with her boyfriend expecting domestic bliss, but instead has trouble getting comfortable. Her strange new home seems determined to help out - and soon the walls are talking. They reveal the magical tale of an old hat-maker and his long-suffering wife, who runs away with his favorite hat. This sweet and surreal story bends time and space to redefine the idea of family, home, and true love itself.
"Feels like pure levitation"
- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Gut-laughter funny and hit-you-in-the-gut sad... Ms. Yee is a playwright to watch”
"There is much to enjoy in the circuitous daring of The Hatmaker’s Wife..."
