A satirical smack-down of culture, stereotype, and geopolitics.


Directed by Shona Osterhout

The Mace is brilliant, the best at his job. He’s so good that he’s paid well to lose. Mace is the ring name of Macedonio Guerra. He has to be better than all the champs in his pro-wrestling league so that he can make them look good. Even if he never gets credit for his skill, and his privileged bosses don’t care how good he is, he’s in love with what he does: taking a fall so the biggest champ, Chad Deity, always wins. But when he meets VP, his new friend whose charisma may be big enough to upend even Chad Deity, things start to get interesting. Audience members are ringside spectators to real pro-wrestling throw-downs and intimate, smart reflections from Mace as he’s revealed as the one spark of truth and honor in an industry based on mutual illusion and suspension of disbelief. The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity is a funny and quirky look at pro wrestling, geopolitics, and capitalism.

This play contains strong language. Recommended for ages 16+
