Our third Bad Play Night was either a great success or an enormously shameful, offensive debacle depending on how you looked at the matter. As usual, we Crows voted on the side of fun. And it was. The house roared with laughter, song, and wild expressions of disbelief, outrage, and occassional utter confusion.

In short, the usual:

17 terrible plays were presented to be performed:

David Body - Aphrodite Is Bad
Charlie Cole - Beach Battle
J.W. Jones - Cardboard Wars
Ed King - Stuck in Your Head - The Musical
James Melanson - A Kardashin Kristmas by Ingmar Bergman
Chalmers Hardenbergh - The Other Gettysburg Address
Hal Cohen - Eddie and Bambi Drink Milk
Jo-Anne Walton - Seven Deadly Sins Take a Holiday
Meredythe Dehne Lindsey - PUNishment
Peter K. - Law and Order Holiday Victim Unit
Howard Rosenfield - The Fifth Wednesday
Elizabeth Freeman - 96-B-A-D
Michael Kimball - No One Named Johanna
Kat Loef -Smell My Armpit 
Josh Brassard - Fucking Mimes
Anna Cranage Conathan - Laura's Revenge
