Hours of Operation

This production contains adult language and content and is recommended for mature audiences.

Playwright Sharr White has molded the riveting study of a family under the worst kind of stress imaginable – for this is stress which doesn’t go away with time and only gets more and more intolerable as the years roll by—with hilarious results. Stupid Kid weaves the tale of 14-year old Chick Ford, who is tried as an adult and convicted of his girlfriend’s rape and murder, a crime which he swears he didn’t commit. Fourteen years go by, and the Innocence Project becomes involved in his case – only to find that his DNA suggests that he did not kill the victim. When Chick is released from prison at 28, he returns home to poverty-ridden East Colorado to find that his family is flat broke and less than welcoming.
