The plots of the 12 plays that will be performed at this year's Theatre Roulette are a testament to why this annual MadLab festival of new shorts has become so popular (this is its 13th run) - there is something for everyone.

Children mysteriously disappearing! Fortune cookies revealing terrifying fates! Cell phones losing reception!

MadLab actors (such as managing director Andy Batt, pictured) perform four plays per night. Which shows you see depends on which night you attend. Hence, the roulette. Not a gambler? Come to the final marathon show day, May 26, and watch all 12 plays performed starting at 2 p.m.
