About The Pain and the Itch - Off Broadway

Show Info


With a young daughter in serious need of attention and a ravenous creature possibly prowling the upstairs bedrooms, what begins as an average Thanksgiving for one privileged family unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. A smash hit at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater, where it won the prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Play, The Pain and the Itch is a scathing satire of the politics of class and race, a controversial, painfully human examination of denial and its consequences.
