30 Queer Plays in 60 Straight Minutes is a special edition of The Infinite Wrench that corrals the queerest plays into one show, slaying gender roles and celebrating deviance. The cast features Neo-Futurist Ensemble Members Ida Cuttler, Trevor Dawkins, Nick Hart, Joanna Jamerson, Jasmine Henri Jordan, Connor Shioshita Pickett, Kirsten Riiber, Leah Urzendowski and Malic White.
The Thursday, June 21 performance is a benefit for Brave Space Alliance, the first Black-led, trans-led LGBTQ Center located on the South Side of Chicago, and designed to create and provide affirming and culturally competent services for the entire LGBTQ community of Chicago. Executive Director LaSaia Wade said, "We are thankful to The Neo-Futurists for naming us the beneficiary of this Pride performance. A part of our mission statement is to engage in community building and the creation of kinship. We believe that the theatre and the power of performance is a particularly great way to celebrate and engage all communities, and we look forward to being there."

The Neo-Futurists are a collective of writer-director-performers creating theater that is fusion of sport, poetry and living-newspaper. Originating over 10,071 plays within the newly launched The Infinite Wrench, 28 years of Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, and more than 65 full-length productions within their immediate, non-illusory aesthetic, The Neo-Futurists have grown to become one of the most highly regarded experimental theater companies in the United States. From humble beginnings as the first late-night theater production in Chicago, they launched what became Chicago's longest running show and today sustain multifaceted programs such as Neo-Access, The Kitchen (a micro-festival on art and performance), Prime Time, exchanges with branches in New York and San Francisco, Neo-Lab, and The Infinite Wrench, their new flagship ongoing late-night show running 50 weekends every year.
