What Others Are Saying

“The Baby is gone, but the Wrench goes on forever. ”

- The Chicago Tribune
Kerry Reid

“Best of Chicago - Best Long-Running Play ”

- The Chicago Reader

“In live theatre, every performance is different, even when the script and actors are the same, but the Neo-Futurists take this principle to another level, and for that reason, The Infinite Wrench, like its predecessors, is worth seeing again and again.”

- Splash Magazine
Jessie Bond

“I used to have this one favorite show that defined how I looked at things. Last night I saw a newer, more colorful version of that thing and it felt even better than the way the old thing made me feel. Go see the Infinite Wrench this weekend and then see it forever and ever.”

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, irreverent, 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.

Tickets available online for any (or all) performances throughout the year. And as always, half the house is reserved for walk-ups on a first-come-first-serve basis. See you in line.

Fridays/Saturdays @ 11:30pm

Sundays @ 7pm

The Neo-Futurarium, 5153 N. Ashland (Foster & Ashland).

Performances of The Infinite Wrench are priced at $9 + the roll of a six-sided die (or, pre-paid $20 with a rollback). Note: Walkup tickets are cash only.

Where does the name come from?
The title of our show The Infinite Wrench is partly inspired by text from Mina Loy’s “Feminist Manifesto” (1914). Loy was briefly associated with the original Italian Futurists, and wrote her manifesto in response to some of the group’s establishing principles.
