Behold, Audience Member! This 2016-17 Season of new Neo-Futurist work. Expect risk, bravery, honesty and joy. Explore the shapes of galaxies, the benefits of spandex, and hidden meanings within tree stumps. Speak up and ask good questions. Look up fractal. Be critical, renounce cliché. Arrive hungry and leave full. You are welcome.
Dive deep into Outer Space with Saturn Returns, past the magical world of unicorns and clowns with The? Unicorn? Hour?, and back home in time for a warm meal with The Food Show. Too Much Light and The Arrow are back. Tangles & Plaques and The Infinite Whale are just getting started. Arrive hungry and leave full. You are welcome.

A multi-city production on farms, in restaurants, and around family tables, cooking up the future of food and how it brings us together.
Created by Greg Allen, Written by The Neo-Futurist Ensemble
Our never-ending, ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. And hey, at 28 years it’s still the longest running production in Chicago history.
Created by Kurt Chiang and Lily Mooney
The Arrow is a new Neo-Futurist experiment: a recurring show that subjects written stories to spontaneous interventions.
Created by Nick Hart
An ensemble writes an infinite number of experimental plays, each one infinitely long, and performs them simultaneously in encroaching darkness.
Created by Kirsten Riiber
Exploring the life and death of memories; the ways they persist, the ways they depart, and the ways they may distort over time.
