NEO-LAB PRESENTS: THE NEO-FUTURISTS SELL OUT
Neo-Lab is The Neo-Futurists’ in-house residency to support the development of a full-length Neo-Futurist mainstage show. The 2021-2022 Season residency will support the development of The Neo-Futurists Sell Out by Ensemble Member Connor Shioshita Pickett, a non-fundraiser attempt to get rich and secure the financial future of our organization, whatever the cost. As American life gets more vicious, more precarious, and more expensive, the cast will have to decide how to prepare for an uncertain (but almost certainly awful) future. Throughout this series of laboratory performances, the cast will try to make money, or try to make their money into more money, by engaging with stunts, schemes, and scams.
Join four brave, intelligent, increasingly-precarious writer-performers as they investigate these questions, celebrate the shareholders, and generally make-believe about being well-fed artists.
