About This Show

Presented as part of the Under The Radar festival.

created by Rude Mechs
directed by Shawn Sides
adapted by Kirk Lynn et al from the work of David Rees

Rude Mechanicals (a.k.a. Rude Mechs) continue their slog through the near-infinite modes of performance, this time toeing the line agit-prop theatre has drawn in the sands of these troubled times. Using David Rees’ savage and hysterical internet comic strip “Get Your War On” to combat the mainstream media’s cultural amnesia about the sins of the current administration, the Rude Mechs cuss and spit through six years worth of disappointment, horror, and shame. With nothing more than five overhead projectors and public domain clip-art, Get Your War On represents stunned and outraged Americans as they react to 9/11, the Bush administration, and its “totally awesome” War On Terror. “Hey, remember when we declared a War on Drugs and now you can’t buy drugs anymore? It’ll be just like that!”

Additional Perf: Monday January 22 5PM

The Rude Mechs’ adaptation of David Rees’ popular internet cartoon is sharp, ironic, and often hilarious.
