A hilarious social satire about liberal hypocrisy from an American writer whose work has been staged by the world famous Steppenwolf Theatre.

A cosy family Thanksgiving dinner for six. But someone – or something – is leaving bite marks in the avocados. Clay and Kelly’s daughter Kayla has an itch and Carol can’t remember who played Gandhi.

The Pain and the Itch holds up a mirror to those who want it all: moral superiority and a widescreen TV.
