Three men find themselves fighting for more than just a title belt.

Diaz’s smart, hilarious powerslam of a play pins pop culture to the mat while throwing political correctness out of the ring. Tired of making other pro wrestlers look good, Macedonio “The Mace” Guerra recruits a smart-mouthed Indian kid to dethrone the current All-American champ, Chad Deity.  But when the rivalry is used to exploit racial stereotypes, the men find themselves fighting for more than just a title belt, and The Mace learns that his childhood dream isn’t all it was cracked up to be.

What the critics are saying about The elaborate entrance of chad deity:

“The effectiveness lies in its ability to seamlessly disarm its audience by cloaking its social observations in the no-so-subtle boots of pro-wrestling, and yet its moments of true genius come when characters then break through the previously established wall with acts of pure, emotional outburst.”

“Chad Deity is one of those shows everyone will be talking about, making it the first “must-see” production of 2012.”

“They’ve given spotlight in our community to an important new voice of the American Theatre “

“I see a lot of plays, many of them good, some great, but only a rare few are as much of a triumph this production”
