    The Last Days of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in Exile

    Read the Offoffoff review

    The absolutely untrue, completely misleading story of the demise of the woman who called herself "the most hated woman in America." The Last Days of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in Exile is a comic fantasy that imagines a different fate for the notorious atheist activist who, in real life, disappeared several years ago under a shroud of mystery and speculation. In this version, after having embezzled millions of dollars from her own organization, American Atheists, Madalyn has fled America and is holed up on a South Seas island with her son and her granddaughter. As she waits for the embezzled funds to come through, she is visited by ghosts from her past and feted by the island natives. Old scores are settled, romance blooms, and transformations are undergone as the play moves towards its exciting and unexpected finale. On dark nights Wash & Fold will present Atheism Tonight!, an irreverent evening of excerpts from plays ancient and modern, and The Godless Atheist Cabaret, a wild night of songs, performance, and original short plays commissioned from seven young playwrights, all centered around themes relevant to the mainstage production. "Wash & Fold's mission is to build theatrical events around a single 'Big Idea'", says founding member and playwright David Foley, "In this case it's God and godlessness. That's why we've added the off-night productions-to fully explore the 'Big Idea.'" Adds producer and founding member Jordan Schildcrout, "A story about Madalyn was an obvious choice not just because of the theatricality of her life, but because she is still relevant today. With the debate about removing 'under god' from the pledge and politicians on the left and right clamoring to demonstrate their 'faith' to the electorate, Madalyn is not just a character; she represents an ongoing debate in our society about church and state, belief and disbelief."
