About The Invention of Tragedy

The Flea Theater proudly presents The Invention of Tragedy, written by Flea co-founder Mac Wellman and directed by Meghan Finn.

A chorus of students, all alike and all unalike, are trying like the devil to tell a simple story—perhaps the story about the tragedy of the Sandwich Man, with sandwich boards upon which nothing is written, and hence, say nothing. Wellman’s examination of the post-9/11 world and America’s general and genial acceptance of the Iraq war.
