Mad Gravity (winner of the 2013 Reva Shiner Comedy Award from the Bloomington Playwrights Project) is a philosophical comedy about two Dada performance artists who have built a theatre in their living room. They wanted to build a second experimental space in their kitchen but they just cannot take any more kitchen sink realism. Artaud would be proud. But tonight’s performance goes from bad to worse when they discover that a comet has been spotted in the night sky. There is a 50/50 chance it will hit the earth. Everyone, including the audience, may have only an hour to live. The one page second act (that’s right the second act is one page long) does something no play has ever attempted in the history of theatre – it lets the audience in on the meaning of life.

College of Charleston Department of Theatre

The College of Charleston Department of Theatre and Dance consists of over twenty faculty members who teach a range of courses in the arts of Theatre and Dance and create a series of public performances for the Charleston community.  Our Department is one of a select number in the U.S. accredited by the National Association of Schools of Theatre.  Each academic year there are typically four to five plays presented by the Department in the Emmett Robinson Theatre.  The Emmett Robinson Theatre, named after a man who both studied and taught at the College and who was instrumental in bringing the Theatre Arts into this campus, was built in 1979, seats approximately 310 people, and has been an accommodating venue for plays of widely varied requirements.  Over the years this stage has been the platform on which daring, provocative, and intelligent plays have served to enhance the profile of this Department both regionally and beyond.
