Design Statement

In this modern American comedy of Steven Adly Guirgis, Jackie just got out of jail. He just found a job. He is just ready to make love to the girl of his dreams. He is just ready to start over his life with her. And suddenly next to the bed he sees a hat. A man's hat. And his world turns upside down. He is ready to destroy everything. He only wants to find out whose motherfucker the hat is. The director's intent was to bring on the surface the comic, yet, on the same time, dramatic element of this play. The fact that adults, as presented in the play, have similar reactions, thoughts, mentality, and after all, a way of life with teenagers, was for him the most funny and sad aspect. So, not only the stage but also the costumes should have looked like a combination of an adult's/teen's world.
