Climate Change Madness from Ohio University's MFA Playwriting Program in Athens—Friday 4 December 2015
Ohio University's MFA Playwriting Program and Climate Change Theatre Action presented Climate Change Madness livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv Friday 4 December at 6 p.m. PST (Vancouver) / 8 p.m. CST (Chicago) / 9 p.m. EST (New York).
Ohio University's MFA Playwriting Program is proud to be producing a special night of their weekly Madness show in collaboration with Climate Change Theatre Action. 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 who 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.
Our MFA Playwrights are:
3rd Years: Ryan Patrick Dolan, Aaron Johnson, Tyler JC Whidden
2nd Years: Rachel Bykowski, Catherine Weingarten
1st Years: Cristina Luzarraga, Philana Omorotionwman, Natasha Smith
We'll be including plays from Climate Change Theatre Action playwrights Chantal Bilodeau, Darrah Cloud, Deborah Zoe Laufer, Koffi Kwahulé, and more.
