The world premiere of Halley Feiffer’s The Pain of My Belligerence is set to open April 22 at Playwright’s Horizons. Told over an eight-year timeline, the new drama holds the fraught power dynamics of a relationship up against a shifting culture of patriarchy in America.

Trip Cullman (Choir Boy, Lobby Hero)—marking his and playwright Feiffer's sixth collaboration—directs a cast made up of Feiffer, Hamish Linklater, Vanessa Kai, Keira Belle Young, and Phoebe Young.

In The Pain of My Belligerence, Cat (played by Feiffer) is a journalist at the top of her game: tack-sharp and ambitious, and rapidly establishing her place in the field. Cat meets the crass yet charismatic—and married—Guy, played by Linklater, and the attrition begins.

Performances began March 29.

The creative team for The Pain of My Belligerence is rounded out by Mark Wendland (scenic designer), Paloma Young (costume designer), Ben Stanton (lighting designer), Elisheba Ittoop (original music and sound designer), and Katie Ailinger (production stage manager).
