The Invention of Tragedy

A chorus of students, all alike and all unalike, are trying like the devil to tell a simple story--perhaps the story about the tragedy of the Sandwich Man, with sandwich boards upon which nothing is written, and hence, say nothing. Wellman's examination of the post-9/11 world and America’s general and genial acceptance of the Iraq war.



Join us for Perfect Catastrophes, a festival of Mac Wellman plays at The Flea!
