The production is directed by Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director of the Tricycle Theatre. The designer is Robert Jones, with lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound by Carolyn Downing.

The cast includes Ricardo Chavira ("Desperate Housewives") as Jackie, with Flor De Liz Perez as Veronica, Alec Newman as Ralph, Yul Vazquez as Julio and Natalie Armin as Victoria.



In the play, things are looking up for Jackie. He’s out of jail and staying clean thanks to his sponsor. He might even have found a job. And of course there’s Veronica, who he’s loved since 8th grade. Nothing could come between them – except a hat.



According to press materials, the play is a whip-smart look at love and addiction that finds light even in the darkest corners of New York City.

Giurgis' plays Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train and The Last Days of Judas Iscariot have previously been seen in London at the Arts Theatre (transferred from the Edinburgh Fringe) and the Almeida, respectively.
