Worst Play Ever
By Max Berry
This is the worst play ever. No seriously, I challenge you to find one worse. I wrote this
for a writing assignment in college a few years back and it almost broke my playwriting professor (Sorry Kenny!). So, apologies in advanced. But, even though it’s the worst play ever, it never fails to bring a
smile to my face and I hope it will do the same for you.
