The Hatmaker’s Wife – Play – Centerstage Theatre

Elevator Thoughts (aka Tweet): The Hatmaker’s Wife play at Centerstage Theatre. Surprisingly symbolic, abstract, & time bending with child-like dialogue and Slavic accents. #theatre #hat

Synopsis from the Theatre: Hetchman the retired hatmaker loves his hat – and his wife. When both go missing, he vows to find them. But first he needs to muster the strength to leave the comforts of his beloved armchair. The Hatmaker’s Wife is a surreal time-bending fable set in a home where walls talk, words magically appear, and a sweet unexplainable love triangle develops between a man, his wife, and his hat.
