Clever, Indulgent, Quirky, Experimental

See it if the Neo-Futurists' brand of subversive, unconventional, absurdist comedy suits your aesthetic; you're prepared for a hastily-composed work.

Don't see it if you lack the patience for a well-intentioned & fun but overambitious, scattered screed that's a little too idiosyncratic for its own good. Read more

Entertaining, Dated, Funny, Slow, Diffuse

See it if you're willing to take a chance on 4 personable performers doing goofy stuff with conviction & no more direction than: "Full speed ahead!"

Don't see it if you're looking for a play, or traditional comic improv, or have an aversion to audience participation. Read more

Theatre is Easy
April 23rd, 2018

"The story of an unstoppable wind-up monkey...The ensemble regales us with some deceptively simple stories that add up to a satisfying, powerful whole...Have no fear, the monkey is not alone. A wind-up blue dinosaur and a wind-up robot join in the march. And, in one of the show's many beautiful moments, a wind-up unicorn appears...The cast draws the audience out and gets them feeling good...It all feels Brechtian and Communist and self-affirming."
