About this show

This is the West Coast Premiere of Bruce Norris' The Pain and the Itch, a co-production of The Theatre @ Boston Court and Furious Theatre Company. A young daughter is in serious need of attention while her parents worry if the milk is organic. A ravenous creature may be prowling the upstairs bedrooms. An average Thanksgiving for this family unravels into an exposé of disastrous choices and less-than-altruistic motives. The Pain and the Itch is a scathing comedy about the politics of class and race, a controversial examination of denial and its consequences; a deeply disturbing play that skewers the liberal point of view. Directed by Dámaso Rodriguez.
