Wendell. Paperback

Wendell. is a play by multidisciplinary artist John Moletress. A riff on Woyzeck. Büchner’s 1837 fragmented tragedy of a young, broken soldier 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 Jim Beam as she imagines her former days as the crowned Queen Nicotina. Father Bundy hears war sounds while cleaning 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.
