The Maderati
by Richard Greenberg

The William Inge Memorial Theatre

In Tony Award-winning playwright Richard Greenberg's The Maderati, an inbred group of Mannhattan yuppies are shaken when Charlotte, one of their own, is admitted to a mental hospital. The farce begins when that information is misunderstood by one couple to whom it is reported. As they spread the word of Charlotte's "death," the incremental exaggeration pushes all the characters to the brink of insanity. The Maderati, originally produced Off-Broadway in 1987, is a comic arsenal of absurdism bound to please. Narcissism and self-absorption dominate friendship and love in this hilarious quick-paced comedy directed by Jeanne Tiehen. Come witness the most obtuse impromptu get-together of Greenberg’s zaniest characters.
