The next madness of the school year will be produced by second year playwright, Cristina Luzarraga! Her prompt is “Strangers” Madness! For her madness, she has asked the playwrights to explore characters who are strangers onstage.
Here is an excerpt from the prompt:
“Can any two strangers forge a bond? Or do some people, like oil and water, just not mix? What prejudices might facilitate or hinder these would be friendships. The dictionary defines a strangers as someone who you have not met before or do not know. However, I will allow you to interpret the definition a little more broadly. That is, you may write about people who mistake each other for strangers; or alternately, people who think they know eachother but turn out to be strangers.
The show is Friday, September 16th, 11pm, in the Hahne Black Box theater. Admission is free. We recommend you get there 45 to 60 minutes ahead of time to assure yourself a seat.
