Profile

Playwright Kristoffer Diaz spoofs made-for-TV wrestling in what he calls a “serious-minded comedy of [fixed fights], geopolitics, and raisin bread.” Our guide to this world is Macedonio, a wrestler who doesn’t quite possess the size or charisma to be the sort of champ producers are looking for. The title character, Chad Deity, is a muscle-bound god of body slams and pure theatricality. After Mace discovers Vigneshwar Paduar, an Indian-American kid from Brooklyn with the talent to rival Deity, big boss Everett K. Olson comes up with a plan to have the two perform as terrorists. If you need more convincing to give this show a chance, don’t worry—we won’t threaten bodily harm. We’ll just tell you that Diaz’s play won an Obie and was a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.
