Running Time

90 minutes, no intermission

"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

Part Pygmalion, part Busby Berkeley, part self-help lexicon, Stop Hitting Yourself borrows from the plots of 1930's musicals to dig deep into the contemporary conservative dilemma: how to honor steely individualism without disavowing the virtue of charity -- all the while tap-dancing around a queso fountain. Commissioned by LCT3, Stop Hitting Yourself is a world premiere.
