What is it? Critics say this…


“Thirty years and one major name change later, the Neo-Futurists’ signature show…continues to pack them in late nights with [30 short plays] about everything under the sun.”

— Chicago Tribune

“Any version of The Infinite Wrench is going to be a surprising, occasionally powerful, often hilarious and always entertaining evening.”

– Chicago On Stage

“…the ingenuity and engagement of the work not only remains but has deepened….the ensemble maps thorny social, psychological, and political terrain with foolishness and ferocity.”

— Chicago Reader

Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irreverent, terrifying, or a song; all 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 those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.
