THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY
By Kristoffer Diaz
Directed by John Vreeke
September 3 – 30, 2012
This 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist is a drop-kicking, body-slamming, balls-out theatrical happening set in the larger-than-life world of professional wrestling. Macedonio “Mace” Guerra plays the fall-guy for mega-successful “THE” Wrestling League, losing again and again to the impossibly charismatic champ Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of Chad’s, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo: put them onscreen as terrorists. In wrestling, as in life, it’s tough to voice your own identity over the roar of the crowd.
