Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind

30 plays in 60 minutes every weekend, and ever-changing.
Over nine-thousand 2-minute plays written since 1988.

Our signature show, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind, which had its first performance on December 2, 1988, is now in its twenty-seventh year, making it the longest-running show in Chicago today. Too Much Light…, with its ever-changing “menu,” is an attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty.

See Too Much Light

Day. Time. Location.

Friday and Saturday at 11:30 p.m. & Sunday at 7:00 p.m. All shows will be performed at The Neo-Futurarium, 5153 N. Ashland @ Foster. Check out our Tips for going to TML and learn everything else you need to know here (about the show, not life). Same Show Times. Different Shows, Every Time.
