drama about conspiracy theories


Andy’s losing it. Not in the way that most college students tend to, no. This is serious. In two acts we are introduced to the mind of a young adult on the cusp of a mental break in this play about conspiracy theories. Breakthrough or breakdown? You decide. In Flat, a drama in two acts, Damon’s roomie no longer contributes to rent or the dorm in any way. To say Damon has had enough is an understatement.

Jess, Andy’s girlfriend feels the disconnection between herself and her boyfriend growing larger everyday. The more she tries to close the gap the more he extends it with what she believes are delusional ideas. Andy will argue that paying rent is insignificant in the grand scheme of things and that his beliefs are just as valid as Jess’.

Nobody, including his own mother can get through to him.  Andy finds himself gravitating to Ted, a considerably older fellow believer in conspiracy theories. In this drama, mental health is examined in an honest and uncomfortable way from the people who suffer from it outside of the person in question.

Suspending belief.  In belief itself.
