Mad Gravity

Reva Shiner Comedy Award Winner
Written by William Missouri Downs

Archie and Eudora have built a live studio audience in their living room. Being constantly observed helps them to lead an honest and honorable life. But things get awkward when some important visitors get a massive case of stage fright. Then, when it’s announced that an asteroid may be heading cataclysmically towards the Earth, all social order breaks down and the honest and honorable life takes a backseat to a frenzied, panicked mayhem. Also, in Act II, you will learn the meaning of life.
