The Hatmaker’s Wife

Dates : June 5, 2024 — June 25, 2024

Magic and realism collide in this modern fable about learning to love.

A play by Lauren Yee
Directed by Dan Rothenberg

The Hatmaker’s Wife runs approximately 115 minutes.

The 2023-2024 Theater J season wraps up with a production of Lauren Yee’s The Hatmaker’s Wife, directed by Dan Rothenberg, founding member and co-artistic director of Philadelphia’s Pig Iron Theatre Company.

Magic and realism collide in this modern fable about learning to love. A young woman moves in with her boyfriend, and when she has trouble getting comfortable, her strange new home seems determined to help out, literally. The walls start to talk, words magically appear, and a golem with a taste for Cheetos gets into the action.

A cross between a ghost story and a Yiddish fable, Lauren Yee’s moving and whimsical The Hatmaker’s Wife redefines home, family, and love.
