Twenty-four-hour play, where troupes have a single day to write, direct and rehearse short plays, have become a popular tradition in recent years, but Berzerk!!!, a joint presentation from the Insurgent Theatre Ambush and Alamo Basement troupes, takes the idea a step further. A dozen or so writers will have just a mere 10 minutes to conceive and finish their play (while the actors are given a comparatively generous 24-hours to rehearse). To further explore the writing process, one writer will have an extra week to fine-tune their off-the-cuff script, then both versions (the quick draft and the incubated update) will be performed. This one-off show at the Alchemist Theatre, 2569 S. Kinnickinnick Ave., is performed at 8 p.m.


The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?
