Theater: MadLab's Theatre Roulette

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Over the course of eight hours on Saturday, MadLab's actors will take on everything from the story of a narcoleptic couple staying up all night to try to patch their marriage to a tale involving a man, a woman, a dress, a match, a death and a motorcycle.

It's all part of MadLab's 11th-annual Theatre Roulette series, a crazy collection of 12 shows that have been performed throughout the month in groups of four. This weekend's culmination is an all-day restaging of all 12 scripts.

Presented on back-to-back-to-back evenings each weekend this month, the lineup includes the work of writers from all over the country - but with a special emphasis this year on pieces penned in Columbus.

"That's the cool thing about Roulette, you get to see this diverse selection of shows and if you don't like one, there's another one coming up soon," said Stephen Woosley, MadLab's publicity co-chair.

"And if you do like one, there's another one you might like even better right behind it."

2-10 p.m. Saturday, May 29
