Robert Putka

A matriarch past the point of a nervous breakdown, her two daughters that don't give a damn, and the missiles of resentment they toss at each other. Tony Award Winner Maryann Plunkett leads the cast of this dark comedy that critics deem "as charming as it is abrasive, somber as it is hostile... gets to VEEP levels of genius, resulting in equal amounts of guffaws and cringes" (Ben Umstead, twitchfilm).

Written and directed by Ohio filmmaker Robert Putka. Cast includes Tony Award Winner Maryann Plunkett, Eilis Cahill and Jennifer LaFleur. Official Selection, 2016 Slamdance Film Festival.

MAD made its Chicago Premiere at the Midwest Independent Film Festival on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016.
