HOUSTON PREMIERE

Live wrestling by Doomsday Wrestling

Immersive experience by Horse Head Theatre Co.

A body-slamming, power-bombing theatrical spectacular! In this brilliantly satirical Pulitzer Prize finalist, young Latino wrestler Macedonio “Mace” Guerra is content to be the fall guy for “THE” Wrestling, taking beating after beating from charismatic all-star Chad Deity—until Mace discovers an Indian-American street hustler whose appeal might outshine even the mighty Chad’s. Brash, edgy and vibrantly entertaining, Chad Deity takes corporate entertainment and geopolitics to the mat.

To tell this story, Stages has transformed its Yeager Theatre into a wrestling arena, complete with a 14' professional ring and live video feed. And the fun starts even before the show begins! Stages has partnered with Doomsday Wrestling to present live wrestling matches in the theatre 30 mInutes prior to each performance, as well as an interactive intermission match. In addition, Horse Head Theatre Co. will usher audiences into the world of Chad Deity with an environmentally immersive experience, transforming the Stages lobby with the accoutrements of a wrestling arena. Whether you're a die-hard wrestling fan or a skeptic, this one's gonna knock your socks off.

Recommended for mature audiences.
