About the Play/Event

Director: Shinshin Yuder Tsai
Run: Jun. 7 — Jul. 6, 2019 Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 2pm

What makes The Hatmaker's Wife a success is its dexterity and fluidity. Yee's characters and story lines jump back and forth not only between the realistic and the fantastical but also between gut-laughter funny and hit-you-in-the-gut sad — and they do so with astounding truthfulness

In Lauren Yee’s comic fairy tale inspired by the Jewish folktales of Sholem Aleichem, we are introduced to a young woman who moves in with her boyfriend expecting domestic bliss. Instead, she finds discomfort, displacement, and the realization that she needs more.  In this witty and often deeply touching comedy, she finds assistance and guidance from the unlikeliest of sources — a wall in her new home. As the wall shares with her the magical tale of an old hat-maker and his long-suffering wife, this sweet and surreal story bends time and space to redefine the idea of family, home, and true love itself.
