Lewis Black admits he was somewhat bitter when he abandoned his life as a struggling playwright 26 years ago. Still Black never completely fell out of love with live theater. And he kept writing and tinkering with his plays even after he became a famous TV personality. That includes this romantic comedy "One Slight Hitch"

In the play, a woman is about to get married when her ex-boyfriend shows up unannounced and causes all sorts of mayhem. It’s all mixed with subtle social and political commentary and set in the Reagan-era ’80s.

The play was inspired by a girlfriend who broke up with Black and told him she never wanted to get married. Then she called him one day and said she’d met a man and — surprise! — they were getting hitched. "That really blew my mind," he says.
