Lunatics from the nightmare world of Tennessee Williams come into contact with Greek divas of Medea proportion. The Hardy Boys soar over and into a cuckoo's nest wherein Nurse Ratchet presides. And Sam Shepard macho-mania threatens to cannibalized mid 80's psychobabble in the shape of a chain-smoking madwoman. All of this came to staggering life and endless laughter when UW Drama presented 5 one act theatre parodies collectively titled totally durang-ed, written by Christopher Durang, America's wildest satirist.
