THE EGG WRENCH-

-A  Mother’s Day Show that will subvert all expectations of this hallmark holiday.  Featuring The Neofuturists favorite “Egg Plays” from over the years:  THE EGG WRENCH cracks open the idea of mothering as a verb (“to give rise to”) and explores the way every human, of any gender, sexuality or orientation has mothered or has been  mothered, illuminating and uncracking all the messy, goopy, protein rich joys and strife this entails.
