Feed Your Mind: The Elaborate Entrance Of Chad Deity By Kristoffer Diaz says
Winner! 2011 Obie Award for Best New American Play
Winner! 2008 National Latino Playwriting Award

“...the delicious crackle and pop of a galloping, honest-to-God, all-American satire.”—New York Times

“...weighing in with a unique combo of vigorous physicality and wickedly intelligent humor...a vibrantly entertaining, insightful new play about -- wait for it -- professional wrestling.”—Variety

Behind Every Winner There’s a Great Loser. This 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist is a no-holds-barred satirical smackdown set in the larger-than-life world of professional wrestling. Tired of making other pro wrestlers look good, Macedonio “The Mace” Guerra recruits a smart-mouthed Indian to dethrone the current All-American champ, Chad Deity. When the rivalry is used to exploit racial stereotypes, this smart, hilarious powerslam of a play pins pop culture to the mat while throwing political correctness out of the ring.

WARNING: VERY STRONG LANGUAGE. Intended for mature audiences.

Directed by Suzanne M. Cohen, THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY features Eric Ray Anderson, Marcel Davis, David Natale, Arvind Srinisavan, and Jake Ynzunza.

Theatre That Gets People Talking, Mirror Stage’s Feed Your Mind series examines topical issues from different perspectives. The plays are presented simply: no costumes or sets—just the actors and the text. Following every performance, a moderated discussion with the audience and artists further explores the issues raised in more depth.
