Metro Studio Theatre
Rock concert. Musical. Unfairytale. WYRD has it all, without even a hint of a handsome prince. Think Alice in Wonderland or The Wizard of Oz – just add eviscerating social satire and a lot more mud.
Once upon a (pick a time in history), a woman escapes her abusive lover and finds herself in a dingy motel in the middle of nowhere. Mysteriously drawn into the woods, she wanders off the beaten path and discovers an ancient bog. There she encounters three mythical hags at their annual reunion (they’re not scary, they’re just misunderstood). Among the flatulating mushrooms, horny herons, a random game show, punk rocking crones, an egocentric King from a Shakespearean tragedy, and a visiting hag from ‘down south’, the woman navigates the bewildering darkness, trying to find the path home.
WYRD hilariously deconstructs everyday patriarchal norms and holds a mirror up for us to yank out our internalized misogyny and take a hearty gander at it.
Presented in association with Atomic Vaudeville.
