The Pain and the Itch
A cosy family Thanksgiving dinner for six. Someone – or something – is leaving bite marks in the avocados. Clay and Kelly’s daughter Kayla has an itch and Carol can’t remember who played Gandhi.
In his first UK production, American writer Bruce Norris takes a withering look at phoney liberal values in this hilarious social satire.
The Pain and the Itch premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago before a sold-out run off-Broadway. Bruce Norris’ previous credits include The Infidel, Purple Heart and The Unmentionables. This UK premiere is directed by Dominic Cooke in his first production as Artistic Director of the Royal Court.
