The Neo-Futurists Late-Night Show

These 30 Plays (the neo-futurists In Previews)
18 plays were left from 2016. The Neo-Futurists added 1​3​ more for 2017. That makes a show​ that for now we’re calling–These 30 Plays (the neo-futurists In Previews). We invite you to this ​trial period of experimentation, discovery, gambling, testing-the-milk, satisfying successes and glorious failures, all​ towards the goal​ of creating a new​ly titled​ home show of ever-changing attempts. While each ​showing will be different, you should still expect the same brand of brash, funny, poignant and relevant theater that we’ve honed over 28 years.
