The Infinite Wrench  
Neo-Futurists at Online Stream The Infinite Wrench
 
The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different-some are funny, others profound. Some are elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or put to song. All of the plays 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 the present audience, including those unreached or unmoved by other types of theater.

Don't miss this "nasty-teen comedy, wonderfully refreshed and deepened" (The New York Times) that spotlights the universal similarities-and glaring differences-of teenage girls around the globe.
