On the heels of the seven-year run of I Still Love H.E.R. (atributetohiphop), playwright Wendell Tucker takes to the Viaduct stage once more, this time for his own one-man show, Wendell Tucker Hates the World. Based on his experiences as an African American with Major Depressive Disorder, the one-hour onslaught tears a path through the lengthy list of things Wendell despises, including dating, pop culture, and current healthcare policies. The comedic massacre even reaches to such innocuous things as jello. But just beneath the surface a question begins to form: is Wendell just a bitter crank, or does his hate stem from something more pervasive?

Viaduct Theater

The Viaduct Theater's intimate environs encourage audiences to engage with the show, though viewers in the front rows may find themselves splattered with raw vitriol. Before and after the play, crowd members can order a beer from the onsite bar and admire the vintage theater and concert posters plastering the lobby walls (drinks not included with this Groupon).
