Experience pro wrestling in a whole new light — or perhaps for the first time — in Kristoffer Diaz’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated play. Chad Deity follows the life of wrestler Macedonio Guerra. As a lifelong fan, he has followed wrestling only to become a “jobber,” one who is paid to lose to bigger-name stars in the ring. Macedonio meets Vigneshwar Paduar, and together they find a way to push it to the limit and say what needs to be said. But will it finally get Mace his big shot at Chad Deity himself? Unspoken racism, politics, and courage are all woven into this play that leaves it all on the mat.

NOTE: This show contains strong trash-talking language.

Kristoffer Diaz, the writer of this play, has written a very entertaining and genuinely funny script. The comedy chops in this show are otherworldly. If we are talking about pure unadulterated comedy, this is one of the best comedy shows of the year.
