One of the great benefits of the Ohio University MFA Playwriting program is the weekly MADNESS production that happens almost every Friday night during the school year. What is Madness, you ask? Week after week, on Mondays, we're presented with new and exciting themes (which stem from the mind of whichever playwright is producing that week) and then on Fridays, we each present a five minute play.

Now in my third year of the program, I've penned more than 50 of these short pieces. I'm assembling them into my own madness for 2013 (a greatest hits of sorts). Until then, I'm posting some of my favorite plays here on my site. They are all about five-minutes in length and two-character pieces. Quick reads all. Take a gander. We don't record madness, but I am considering mounting video versions. Just need to figure out how best to do that. Until then, reading the old fashioned way will have to suffice. Enjoy!

Thoughts. From my brain. Anything to do with how we tell stories and the stories we tell each other. Literally and figuratively.
