About The Pain of My Belligerence:

Twenty-something and brilliant, Cat is a journalist at the top of her game: tack-sharp and ambitious, and rapidly establishing her place in the field. Until she meets Guy — magnetic, devilishly charming, and married — and the attrition begins. Charting their spiky relationship over eight years, following a rapidly changing America, Halley Feiffer’s harrowing comedy sheds light on how we perpetuate our roles within a patriarchal culture, and the promise of a new paradigm.

Our The Pain of My Belligerence Review

The penultimate scene in The Pain of My Belligerence - a play that feels way longer than the announced 85 minutes - is a compact piece of pretty good writing. In a few short minutes, Halley Feiffer (yes THAT Feiffer) managers to surprise and entertain us. The problem is that we have to sit through the first two scenes to get to the third.
