STOP HITTING YOURSELF
created by Rude Mechs
Now Playing at Lincoln Center Theater @ the Claire Tow Theater
"This fiendishly clever satire feels incredibly fresh. An ingenious piece of devised theater that has appeared like a golden unicorn in the Claire Tow Theater." - David Cote, Time Out New York
"A playful and engrossing exploration of wealth, charity, poverty and human nature. You'll be thinking about this one for a long time." - Zachary Stewart, Theatremania
About The Play
With Stop Hitting Yourself, Rude Mechs is embracing the fundamental beliefs underlying late-stage capitalism and indulging in our version of 1930's Hollywood glamour. Part Pygmalion, part Busby Berkley, part self-help lexicon -- all while dancing around a queso fountain. Rude Mechs borrows from the plots of 1930's musicals to dig into the contemporary conservative dilemma: how to honor steely individualism without disavowing the virtue of charity. Tap dancing, fine dining, and the missionary position will be employed in order to help all Americans to stop hitting yourself.
