WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Think pro-wrestling is all outrageous masks and pyrotechnics? Think again - there's so much more in this 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist. This West Coast premiere slams together thrilling spectacle, incredible characters and geopolitical allegory into an invigorating theatrical experience you can't find on pay-per-view. This smack-down of a play tackles racism, drop-kicks globalization, and brings this championship tale into the ring. In wrestling, as in life, behind every winner lies the story of a really excellent loser. The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity had its world premiere in 2010 at Second Stage in New York directed by Eddie Torres, who will also be helming the Geffen Playhouse production. This West Coast premiere will mark the second production of the acclaimed play and will allow both playwright and director to delve deeper into this still new work.
