Madcap 24

Theater groups from across Houston will participate in the frenzied Madcap 24. Each group will write, cast, direct and stage a production in a single 24-hour period. From the blank page to curtain call in one day Ñ hmm, it's easy to see why they call it madcap. 8 p.m. Country Playhouse, 12802 Queensbury. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit www.countryplayhouse.org. $10.
Sat., Aug. 22, 8 p.m., 2009
KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
