Building Madness


Professional World Premiere!

Winner of the Panowski Playwriting Award

Max and Paul are just trying to keep their architecture company afloat, but they accidentally hired the mob to build a police retirement home. They may never get the project done in this screwball comedy, but they are most definitely building madness. If you love those great old comedies from Hollywood’s Golden Era of the 1930s, you will love this!
