Poster for the play: Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind
Performance dates: October 26–November 5, 2017
Location: Tilden Arts Studio Theater

Auditions for the long running "Neo-Futurists" show is an ensemble presentation of "30 Plays in 60 Minutes." Each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience, which has received a "menu" with a list of 30 play titles that correspond to 30 paper numbers hanging from a clothesline above the stage. Audience members choose the plays, and in a sense, are "in-control" of the performance. But the lines between performer and observer are often blurred, and you have to be ready for anything. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest and a sold out show results in ordering takeout for everyone to share! This is fun, raw, intense theatre with guaranteed laughs, possible tears, and perhaps an awkward pause or two. Definitely unlike anything you’ve ever seen or performed in – EVER!

Auditions will involve improvisation and cold readings from the script and ALL ARE WELCOME!

Productions dates are:

  • October 26–29
  • November 2–5

There will be two shows on at least two of those dates.
