Synopsis: 

Set in a crummy motel on a desolate highway leading away from a penitentiary, In God's Hat involves two brothers who haven't seen each other for a bit more than the decade Mitch has been locked up for pedophilia. When Roy, the younger of the two, implies that his brother's payment of his debt to society still leaves an unpaid balance to the family, a feeling of double jeopardy is seeping under the door. As two Aryan skinheads butt in to add their own crude indictments, Mitch's punishment is starting to look a lot worse than the crime.

    Toying With Freedom After Prison

    Ken Jaworowski

    July 26, 2010: Given that the laconic characters of “In God’s Hat” seldom waste their breath, it’s tempting to sum up the play with a single word: terrific. Still, the story begs for more description, if only to ponder why this noirish tale of loutish people feels so downright thrilling.

    In God's Hat

    Ron Cohen

    July 18, 2010: Richard Taylor's terrific new play "In God's Hat" is contemporary Grand Guignol of a high order. As realized in director Kevin Kittle's intense and splendidly acted production, it inspires gut-grabbing terror and delivers an emotional jolt as well.

    Paulanne Simmons

    July 20, 2010: If you've ever bitten your nails all the way down to your fingertips while watching an Alfred Hitchcock thriller. Or refused to budge from your seat while one of the spookier Twilight Zone episodes drew to its conclusion, then you'll understand the pleasure of watching Richard Taylor's new play, In God's Hat. What's more Taylor accomplishes this without the aid of the supernatural or drop-dead gorgeous vampires.

    In God's Hat

    Paul Menard

    July 23, 2010: “Truth can be unsettling,” a swastika-tattooed skinhead forebodingly reminds us in In God’s Hat, the gritty new play from Richard Taylor. Considering he offers this truism right before he’s slashed to ribbons with a bowie knife, “unsettling” might just be an understatement.
