Theater, Dance & Media, Harvard University presents THREE AMERICANISMS by Mac Wellman, April 12-15 at Farkas Hall!

Mac Wellman’s Three Americanisms is a decaying painting of the American landscape that, without apology, fuses abstraction and realism. The audience encounters various itinerant souls navigating an unpredictable, alien terrain. An absurdist enterprise that is at once comical and unsettling, armed with language that ricochets between Chaos Theory and a wholly artificial street slang, our heroes maneuver through a land of “rusted jumbos,” “atomic glimmer glass,” “the howling badlands of prehistoric lawn furniture,” and much more. With Wellman’s “uncanny ability to capture the deep structure of contemporary experience in all of its absurdity and illogic” according to critic Marjorie Perlman, Three Americanisms is uniquely attuned to our current American moment.
