Important Hats of the Twentieth Century spins the rip-roaring tale of Sam Greevy, the hottest fashion designer in 1930’s New York… that is, until rival Paul Roms starts releasing strange but popular pieces like “sweatshirts,” “tracksuits” and “skater pants.” When Greevy’s minions break into Roms’s shady operation, they make a startling discovery that could explain from where – or should we say from when? – these avant-garde ensembles are coming. Soon, this rivalry turns into a battle for the very future of humankind, and more importantly, fashion!
Emmy nominated playwright Nick Jones (“Orange Is the New Black,” The Coward, Trevor, Jollyship the Whiz-Bang) and acclaimed director Moritz Von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God, Verité) team up, for this whip-smart, epic, and utterly insane new comedy.
Important Hats of the Twentieth Century is produced in association with Studio 42.
