Wendy and the Neckbeards

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 2:00 PM, repeating until November 15, 2019

One event on November 16, 2019 at 2:00 PM

Free

Wendy, a 17-year-old plus-sized, body-positive makeup artist with her own YouTube channel, is having her life exploded by internet trolls. In the meantime, Jess discovers that her long-term boyfriend Chad spends his time harassing young women on the internet to “blow off steam”. From here, the two stories converge in a hilarious and insightful examination of the current era of internet harassment, toxic masculinity, and the cycle of abuse towards women in America.

This play by Kari Bentley-Quinn will be directed by guest artist, Kevin R. Free, a multidisciplinary artist whose work as a voice actor and theater maker has been showcased many places, including Portland Stage (Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill and The Last Five Years); Off-Broadway (Bellomy in The Fantasticks); on audiobooks (Martha Wells’s Murderbot Diaries), and of course, on the internet (Desert Bluffs, Welcome To Night Vale).

PLEASE NOTE: the play content reflects current teenage angst, culture, and language and therefore may be unsettling for some audience members.

  • Thursday, November 14, 7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 15, 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, November 16, 2:00 p.m.
