The sequel to the sold-out 2013 MN Fringe Festival Audience favorite "Stuck in an Elevator with Patrick Stewart"
Set thirty years after the original, The Wrath of Fandom features the return of George Michael Calger as Sir Patrick Stewart. Sir Patrick once again finds himself stuck in an elevator at a science fiction convention, this time with not one, but two admirers: Daniel (Travis Bedard), his friend from the original elevator all those years ago; and Miranda (Ali Daniels), a young convention worker who will come face-to-face with the horror of toxic male fandom. Meanwhile, as chaos ensues at the convention, the bitter, veteran convention organizer Gretchen (Tanaya E. Walker) finds herself ensnared by two young cosplayers (Destiny A. Davison and Camille Isodora Smith).
There are still excited fans and hard-working but beleaguered convention workers. But times have changed, and with the rise of toxic masculinity in fandom, this time the stakes are much higher.
The struggle for power, identity, and hope for the future explode in this epic saga of the diverse heroes who will rise against the dark forces of raging fanboys and save us all.
