The Infinite Wrench

Online Stream

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.

Presented by Neo-Futurists

The Hawk Chicago - Highly Recommended

"...The plays range in time from around thirty seconds to a few minutes, and are written by the ensemble members who also play themselves on stage. There is music, dancing, mess-making, joke-telling, confessing, and everything in between. Where The Infinite Wrench succeeds most is in the inclusion of a larger number of more serious scripts - it seems that the state of country has made the ensemble feel the need to address current issues with more urgency. They also included significantly more music and sound into the plays than I remembered in Too Much Light, which added so much to the experience. When the talented ensemble isn't on stage, they surround you in the audience, laughing and clapping along with you. "

Chicago On Stage - Highly Recommended

"...The Infinite Wrench is the successor to the long-running Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, and it continues that hit show's format: the talented cast performs up to thirty playlets in an hour, in a sequence chosen by the audience. When the timer runs out, so does the show. Plays range from silly and funny scenes to dramatic monologues to plays partially improvised in front of you to outrageous visual humor to elaborate gimmicks to social commentary to...I could go on, but the idea is that there is no single idea governing these short plays, all of which were written by Neo-Futurist cast members themselves."

Picture This Post - Highly Recommended

"...The Neo-Futurists have not disappointed with their new take on their old classic. They are as punchy and thought-provoking as ever. Old fans and new faces will enjoy THE INFINITE WRENCH (hopefully) for years to come."
