The world premiere of actor and playwright Halley Feiffer’s new play The Pain of My Belligerence opens at Playwrights Horizons April 22. Told over an eight-year timeline, the new play holds the fraught power dynamics of a relationship up against the country’s current shifting of patriarchal culture.

Trip Cullman, a frequent collaborator of Feiffer's, directs a cast made up of Feiffer, Hamish Linklater, Vanessa Kai, Keira Belle Young, and Phoebe Young.

In The Pain of My Belligerence, Cat (Feiffer) is a journalist at the top of her game: tack-sharp and ambitious, and rapidly establishing her place in the field. Cat meets the crass yet charismatic—and married—Guy, played by Linklater, and the attrition begins.

The creative team for the world premiere is rounded out by Mark Wendland (scenic designer), Paloma Young (costume designer), Ben Stanton (lighting designer), Elisheba Ittoop (original music and sound designer), and Katie Ailinger (production stage manager).

The Pain of My Belligerence began March 20 and is scheduled to continue through May 12. For tickets and more information visit PlaywrightsHorizons.org.
