M.A.D. is 'Mutual Assured Destruction'. is a doctrine of military strategy, that started in the Cold War. 
M.A.D. is meant to prevent enemy armies from using nuclear weapons.



2029.
Beijing, China.

The eve of an apparently inevitable military conflict.
To prevent at the eleventh hour an armed struggle that would have disastrous consequences for both, the presidents 
'John' and 'Mi' of the U.S. and China meet privately. 

An all too human encounter within an all too inhuman context.

'M.A.D.' is
a tragicomical duet,
a morbid mating dance,
a lucid fairy tale on the eve of Doomsday.



'M.A.D.'
reflects the author’s fascination with the invisible aspects of military strategies and decision-making. Jorgen Cassier wrote the text specifically for actors Sofie Decleir and Willy Thomas, who appear for the first time together in this two-hander.
