Connecticut Repertory Theatre will stage the world premiere of Emmy Award-winning "Simpsons" writer Mike Reiss' I'm Connecticut as part of its 2011-2012 season.

Connecticut native Reiss penned the work that takes aim at the residents of the "Nutmeg State." Vince J. Cardinal will direct the Dec. 1-10 run.

According to CRT, "I'm Connecticut is a love story about a young man who grew up in Simsbury now living in New York City and searching for love. Amid the anxieties of dating he begins to ask himself what a Nutmegger really is. If you’ve ever wondered about the identity of The Land of Steady Habits, be prepared for a hysterical surprise."
