New York Neo-Futurists' ever-changing race-against-the-clock attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes! More…
With its ever-changing “menu” of plays, 'Too Much Light…' is an attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. The audience is fully part of the act, deciding the order that these plays are performed. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. Each night of performance, they create an unreproducible living newspaper of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly montaged with twenty-nine other plays through high energy audience participation.
