Rock concert. Musical. Unfairytale. WYRD has it all, without even a hint of a handsome prince.
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 gas-lighting game show, punk rocking crones, an egocentric king from a Shakespearean tragedy, and a young hag from 'south of the border', 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.
*Content warning and minimum age suggestion: This show contains adult themes, coarse language, and references to relationship abuse/gender-based violence.
