Reefer Madness

Art Centre Theatre

"Marijuana makes fiends of boys in thirty days; hashish goads users to blood lust," declared a Hearst newspaper article in 1936, the same year the anti-drug propaganda film Reefer Madness was released. Though time has shown us that a little Mary Jane neither creates fiends nor induces blood lust, the exploitation film's anti-"marihuana" message continues to entertain, this time via the ACT performance of this over-the-top stage adaptation of the now cult-classic. Following a group of teens lured into a world of death, destruction and -- gasp -- jazz! Reefer Madness is a tongue-in-cheek comedy that embraces the movie's wackiness with style!
