Get Your War On: The Play!

posted by on October 19 at 17:11 PM

Get Your War On is now a play by the Rude Mechanicals, out of Austin, and they’re touring it from Philly to Houston to D.C. to Marfa, TX.

Guess who’s salivating over it? Your favorite book-blogger and mine, Ms. Maud Newton.

The Rude Mechs [a theater group out of Austin] perform the show with four overhead projectors, cheap office furniture, telephones with dangling, disconnected cords, and a filing cabinet from which they pull the hundreds of transparencies they throw on the overheads during the show. It all begins with the classic line, “Oh yeah! Operation Enduring Freedom is in the house!”

Guess who else is salivating over it?

Every body else.

Oh, I'm totally salivating - although that might be the chocolate chip peanut butter brownie & glass of milk I just had - but, still I'm salivating.

So, the only question remaining is: how do we get them to Sea-town?

Hm, I wonder if the Rat List is still up-and-running?

On the Rude Mechanicals website, they're soliciting to have the Get Your War On play booked at local theaters, presumably nationwide. I think The Stranger should bring 'em to Seattle... I'm sure Seattle could run at least enough sold-out shows to cover the cost of bringin' 'em here!

To book GET YOUR WAR ON at your theatre, call Lana Lesley at 512-478-RUDE (7833) or email to

The last scheduled show is tomorrow night in Marfa.

Or maybe not, considering the lack of interest this post has garnered...
