Winner of the Reva Shiner Comedy Award, “Mad Gravity” is the newest play from Downs (author of last season’s Bard Theatre hit, “The Exit Interview.”)
Archie and Eudora are performance artists. They have a daughter. Mary and Joe are not performance artists (although Joe harbors some fantasies). They have a son. When the disapproving Mary and Joe arrive to discuss their disapproval of the relationship between the respective son and daughter, all hell breaks loose. All social order breaks down and the honest and honorable life takes a backseat to a frenzied, panicked mayhem. Oh, and in Act II, you will learn the meaning of life.
