Lust! Paranoia! Murder! All rolled into one... Set in All-American 1950s suburbia, Dr. Carroll, principal of the local high school, warns how one puff of pot can lead clean-cut teenagers down the road to insanity, death, and worse. Stopping at nothing to make his point, Dr. Carroll tells the sad, sordid story of how the nicest kids in town are lured into a world of violence, weird orgies, wild parties, unleashed passions, and drug-crazed abandon. A spoof of the 1936 cult classic film.

Published Reviews

"Hilarious! One of the funniest plays of the year! In his witty and sarcastic way, Landry manages to make you feel like an ass for even considering any of the trendy Drug-Czar hullabaloo about weed constituting a dire threat to Western civilization."

The Advocate (Connecticut)

"Landry's rendition successfully satirizes both Reefer Madness' sordid depiction of marijuana and the sordidness of the film itself. Though certainly focused on entertainment value, Landry's Reefer Madness is not without intellectual, political and social merit. As all good satire should, Reefer Madness successfully makes one question The Establishment's authority and actual working knowledge of that which it so adamantly preaches against."
