We are not wrestling fans but out 10 year old grandson is and we wanted him to have a positive first theater experience. Wow, were we surprised. The show is a metaphor for the entertainment industry in general. The acting was superior and I even learned a little bit about something I knew nothing . I highly recommend this play. Our grandson has not stopped talking about it.

A Boston Premiere by Kristoffer Diaz
Directed by Shawn LaCount Having just won the Obie for Best New American Play, this Pulitzer finalist is as hilarious as it is relevant. Mace is a professional wrestler. He’s a really good professional wrestler. He’s not the champion though — that’s the impossibly charismatic Chad Deity. When Mace discovers a young Indian-American Brooklyn kid whose charisma rivals that of the champ, Mace decides to get him a job in the company. Only problem is, the boss has a very specific plan for the duo! A serious minded comedy about wrestling, geopolitics, and raisin bread.
