When the costumes come off and the music fades in the staged world of pro wrestling, what do the wrestlers really want to say to their bosses? The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity is a funny and quirky look at pro wrestling, geopolitics, and capitalism. — Chad Deity runs September 15 – October 7 in Juneau.
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. The Mace is brilliant, the best at his job. He’s so good that he’s paid well to lose. 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 for the biggest champ, Chad Deity. 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.
Strong language. Recommended for teens ages 14+. See website for ticket prices and show times.
