About the show

The New York Neo-Futurists present an ever-changing lineup of short plays, each written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with high-energy audience participation. More…

After shuttering the long-running 'Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind,' the New York Neo-Futurists are mounting a brand-new weekly series. 'The Infinite Wrench' is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or a song; all are truthful and tackle the here and now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers. With new plays every week, 'The Infinite Wrench' is the Neo-Futurists’ ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to audiences including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.
