Climate Change Madness

Friday December 4, 2015
Two performances: 9:00pm & 11:00pm
Hahne Theater

Athens, Ohio

Ohio University's MFA Playwriting Program is proud to be producing a special night of their weekly Madness show in collaboration with Climate Change Theatre Action. Madness is part of the practical-based portion of the MFA Playwriting Program consisting of the weekly, informal production of new work. It begins early in the week with a different writer from the program serving as the week’s producer who selects the theme, style, or concept for the upcoming week’s production. Each writer must then write a three to five minute play based upon that theme, style or concept. Each play is written, cast, and rehearsed throughout the week in preparation for the Friday night, script-in-hand production presented before an audience.

For this special engagement with CCTA, we'll be adding a 9pm performance to our regular 11pm show. Our MFA Playwrights are:

3rd Years:  Ryan Patrick Dolan, Aaron Johnson, Tyler JC Whidden
2nd Years: Rachel Bykowski, Catherine Weingarten
1st Years:  Cristina Luzarraga, Philana Omorotionwman, Natasha Smith

We'll be including plays from CCTA playwrights Chantal Bilodeau, Darrah Cloud, Deborah Zoe Laufer, Koffi Kwahulé, and more.
