Lab Theatre (LTH), University of Texas, located between the Jackson Geological Sciences Building (JGB) and the F. Loren Winship Drama Building (WIN) near 24th and San Jacinto. Parking available in the San Jacinto Garage on San Jacinto near Dean Keeton.
With a young daughter in serious need of attention and a ravenous creature possibly prowling the upstairs bedrooms, an average Thanksgiving for one privileged family unravels into an exposé of lies, disastrous choices, and selfish motives, which ultimately leads to a disaster that befalls an immigrant African taxi driver. 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.
