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.

Get your tickets for any (or all) performances on Saturdays @ 10:30pm, and Sundays @ 7pm, at The Neo-Futurist Theater (5153 N. Ashland – intersection of Foster & Ashland). Performances of THE INFINITE WRENCH are priced at $10. Note: walkup tickets are available with cash or card. 

Please also note that there is absolutely NO LATE SEATING for any of our performances and we are unable to offer exchanges or refunds on tickets purchased in advance, so check your calendar twice. If you show up late, we reserve the right to re-sell your ticket to patrons who waited in the heat/rain/snow to see the show.

An advance sale will guarantee your seat for the performance and one of our friendly & powerful House Managers will have an envelope with your name on it containing your pre-paid tokens as you enter the Theater from Ashland Ave. All of our Theater’s seats remain general admission and patrons who purchase tickets in advance must still wait in line to return their token, receive their name-tag and find some choice seats. If you have your eye on the front row, you still need to get here early!

The Infinite Wrench is recommended for audience members 14 and older.
