How does one pursue the “American Dream” in a country that refuses to offer opportunity indiscriminately? That is the question at the heart of The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity, an American satire set in the entertainment wrestling world. We follow Macedonio Guerra, a professional Puerto Rican wrestler, as he rises from the bottom of the pecking order. The play dissects race, xenophobia, ego, and our moral compass. Winner of the 2011 Obie Award for Best New American Play, a 2009 Pulitzer Prize Finalist, and the 2008 National Latino Playwriting Award.
