wendell

Written by John Moletress (adapted from the play “Woyzeck” by Georg Büchner)
Directed by John Moletress

In Moletress’ version of Büchner’s fragmented 1837 tragedy of a young, broken soldier, the tale is transported to present day Charles County, Maryland.  When Wendell plays Doom, he plays in his gas mask.  In the kitchen, mother Mary washes her mouth with Beam as she imagines her former days as the crowned Queen Nicotina.  Father Bundy hears noises while he cleans his gun.  Mike and Doc have a garage band, but they’re not very good.  Alice, wife of Mike, obsesses over her cashier scan time.  And their son Andrew likes to play football but has a bum knee.

April 15 through April 18 at 7:30 p.m. in WMC Alumni Hall

Tickets are $7 for adults and $5 for seniors, students, veterans, and the McDaniel College community.
