    The Mistakes Madeline Made

    Presented by at The Factory Theatre

    November 26 - December 4, 2010


    The Mistakes Madeline Made

    The Mistakes Madeline Made
    by Elizabeth Meriwether
    directed by Krista D'Agostino

    THE MISTAKES MADELINE MADE is a twisted and hilarious story about a girl who develops ablutophobia, the fear of bathing. Struggling with a soul-crushing job as a personal assistant and the traumatic death of her older brother, she wages a furious and funny war against all things complacent, pampered, and clean. As Edna’s smell starts to overwhelm her co-workers and many casual lovers, the play raises the questions: Is dirty living a political act? And is clean living even possible in these times of unrest? An unlikely story of love and dirty people.

    "Crisply assured style and brainy content… Meriwether's gift as a playwright is her ability to take what is familiar and real and view it through the distorted lens of absurdism. MISTAKES takes a good hard look at how the world appears to a generation of smart young kids. From a safe distance, the picture is savagely funny. But when you get close enough, it looks like hell." —Variety.

    "The wounded characters reveal themselves to each other and to us via startling emotional juxtapositions; quietly disquieting confessions of pathos and loss are scattered among their oddball interactions. Every element of this production coheres into a successful whole." —OffOffOnline.

    Featuring: Paige Clark, Emily Culver, Nate Gundy, Bob Mussett, and Victor Shopov
