Midnight Madness

Midnight 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. The producer 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.

Madness takes place Fridays at 11 PM in Hahne Theater in Kantner Hall. The performances last about an hour and are free and open to the public. Arrive at 10 PM to secure tickets. Current Madness Schedule is available here: ohioplaywriting.org/madness/
