Georgia Ensemble Theatre’s current production is a play by Lewis Black — yes, that Lewis Black: the very angry man who can be caught ranting on “The Daily Show” and in his own stand-up comedy specials. It may surprise some of his fans to discover that not only is Lewis Black a playwright, but that his play, “One Slight Hitch,” is a romantic comedy.

WABE’s Lois Reitzes spoke with the show’s director Alan Kilpatrick and actor Mark Cabus from Georgia Ensemble’s production — as well as to Lewis Black himself — about the show and its history.

“One Slight Hitch” is onstage now at the Georgia Ensemble Theatre in Roswell through Jan. 25. More at Atlanta PlanIt.
