ANDERSONVILLE — The Neo-Futurists in Chicago, New York and San Francisco have settled on “The Infinite Wrench” as the name of its new late night show.
In December, the experimental theater announced it was developing a new show to replace “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” after Neo-Futurist founder Greg Allen revoked the Chicago company’s right to perform it in late November.
Since the announcement, the three-city, three-company collaboration have been experimenting with different elements and structures. The groups will continue to collaborate to present new works quickly, according to a press release from the group.
“We’re changing our show’s name, but we are still The Neo-Futurists… We are making new work at a fast weekly clip, and those plays tell our honest first-person perspectives through chance, risk and speed,” said Artistic Director Kurt Chiang. “We’ll continue to welcome sold-out audiences around the block to our shows every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 50 weekends of the year, every year.”
“The Infinite Wrench,” is a barrage of two-minute plays, each offering something different, according to its website. It will debut in all three cities on March 3.
The Chicago ensemble will perform the show at the Neo-Futurarium, 5153 N. Ashland Ave., every weekend except Dec. 15-17 and Dec 22-24. Advanced tickets are available here.
