What is Madness?

Madness: (Noun-jative): a raw and unpredictable show of short plays by an ensemble of emerging playwrights.The primary goal of Madness is the exploration of modern American Playwriting through the use of theatrical storytelling.

The playwright’s Mission: Page to Stage within a one week time span. They write a short play and cast it, rehearse it, bring it in on its feet.  The collected works create a kaleidoscope of cultural moments reflecting this moment in time, framed by a THEME that is chosen by the Featured Guest Artist.
