Third-year MFA playwright, Catherine Weingarten, shall be producing “Daddy Issues” Madness this week in honor of Dad’s weekend!!!! 😉 She is bringing back a prompt that got cancelled last year because of a snow storm. In her prompt she ask many questions like “why this term is so catchy” and “Can your parents really screw you up for life or just a little, like in a sexually appealing way?”
The Madness show is November 4th, 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. Also if you have a reservation, make sure to show up at 10:45 to get your seat. She also says bring a date cause it’s probably gunna be a sexy night of theaterrr

More about Catherine
Catherine Weingarten hails from Ardmore, PA also known as the area that inspired the preppy sexy TV show “Pretty Little Liars.” Catherine’s comedic plays delve into the societal pressure placed on young women to be both impossibly good looking as well as ridiculously intellectual, humble, kind as can be but sexy. Her plays usually include some hot fantasy sequences which helps attract the common man into the theater! She recently graduated from Bennington College in Vermont where she studied playwriting(with Sherry Kramer) as well as gender, mediation and environmental studies. Her short plays have been done at such theaters as Ugly Rhino Productions, Fresh Ground Pepper, Wishbone Theater Collective and Nylon Fusion Collective. She is currently the playwright in residence for “Realize Your Beauty Inc” which promotes positive body image for kids by way of theater arts. Catherine is thrilled to pursue her MFA at OU and thankful for the awesome opportunity for baller mentorship.
