Synopsis

An acerbic mockumentary that combines the reality of the millennial experience with bizarre surrealistic satire, The Mechanicals tells the story of a group of twenty-something actors who spend their days bringing classical theatre to elementary schools and high schools.

The pilot episode features the troupe at the beginning of the rehearsal process, preparing their kid-friendly production of Oedipus Rex...
