Important Hats of the Twentieth Century

Sam Greevy is the toast of 1920s women’s apparel until the maverick fashion designer Paul Roms springs his radical creations in the world. The Sweatshirt, The Track Suit, Skater Pants: the clothes he comes up with are as if... they were from another dimension, and maybe they are.

As Greevy tries to adapt to rapidly changing fashions, a parallel drama unfolds in Albany, circa 1998: a teenager stoner keeps losing articles of clothing, and a man keeps bursting out of his closet and taking them.

"Jones hilariously employs the clichés of Hollywood sci-fi and disaster films, complete with pseudoscientific jargon, a deranged villain, and an epic final battle in which the time-traveling convention really gets a workout. It's unapologetically silly fun..." - TheatreMania 

"Part sci-fi parody, part Ayn Rand spoof and 100% screwball comedy, Important Hats...leaves no punchline unpunched." - The Wall Street Journal

"One of the most delightfully original comedies to show up in these parts for far too long a stretch." - The Huffington Post

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Publishing Company, Inc.
