The Neo-Futurists in Chicago, NYC and San Francisco Debut Late Night Show THE INFINITE WRENCH
"We're changing our show's name, but we are still The Neo-Futurists," says The Neo-Futurists Artistic Director Kurt Chiang. "We are making new work at a fast weekly clip, and those plays tell our honest first-person perspectives through chance, risk and speed. 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 three ensembles have experimented for three decades within The Neo-Futurist aesthetic; as of January 2017, Chicago, New York and San Francisco had created over 9,800, 4,000, and 1,000 plays, respectively. Each company spent the last month in preview periods, investigating different elements and structures, just as Neo ensembles have experimented with new plays and forms within the late-night time throughout their respective histories. The Neo-Futurists will continue to collaborate with each other and their sister companies on the best way to present short new works within a quick timeframe.

The Neo-Futurists ensembles in Chicago, New York and San Francisco are collectives of wildly productive writer-director-performers that create: theater that is fusion of sport, poetry and living-newspaper; non-illusory, interactive performance that conveys experiences and ideas as directly and honestly as possible; immediate, irreproducible events at affordable prices; and programs that embrace those unreached or unmoved by conventional theater-inspiring them to thought, feeling and action.
