WENDELL TUCKER HATES THE WORLD to Run 10/12-28 at Gorilla Tango Bucktown

September 22
11:53 AM 2013

Fresh off the seven-year run of hit hip-hop musical, I Still Love H.E.R. (atributetohiphop), Chicago playwright and performer Wendell Tucker returns to the stage with the debut of his new one man comedy, Wendell Tucker Hates the World. Drawing on his experience as an African American man diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder, Tucker developed this piece, produced by Theori Stages, to urge minorities to fight for their mental wellness. Wendell Tucker Hates the World runs Saturdays at 7 pm from October 12 through October 28, 2013 at Gorilla Tango Bucktown, located at 1919 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at gorillatango.com or by calling 773 598 4549.

An artfully-orchestrated rant about life, love, and the dark side of the human condition, Wendell Tucker Hates the World is framed with comedy and rooted in the belief that mental wellness is an issue quickly eroding the fabric of minority communities. Performer/playwright Tucker obliterates the taboo of mental illness by putting his story front, center, and without apology. Come watch walls of silence be broken down as Tucker presents the vulnerable honesty that comes with knowing oneself through one of the most difficult trials anyone might face.
