Few playwrights have had so deep an influence on modern American theater as Mac Wellman, the inveterate experimentalist whose MFA students at Brooklyn College have included Annie Baker, Young Jean Lee, Clare Barron, Sarah DeLappe, Thomas Bradshaw and Tina Satter. Now the Flea, which he cofounded in 1996, presents five works by the master weirdo in rep: Sincerity Forever and Bad Penny (both August 24–October 7); The Invention of Tragedy (September 7–October 14), which was written in the wake of 9/11 but has never been performed; and a double bill of The Sandalwood Box and The Fez (September 26–October 5).
