I became a member of the genre-bending New York Neo-Futurists in the Spring of 2018. I write and perform year-round in The Infinite Wrench, the Neo-Futurists' ongoing and ever-changing (and NYIT award-winning) exhibition of 30 short plays performed in 60 minutes.
The Infinite Wrench features a rotating cast of 5 to 7 Neo-Futurists who write and rehearse new pieces each week that blend living newspaper theatre, performance art, personal storytelling, and weird comedy. On Friday and Saturday nights 50 weeks out of the year, we set a timer for an hour, we attempt to perform all 30 plays in a random order determined by the audience, and we stop when the timer goes off. We have done this for 16 years (and continue to do it mid-pandemic via our live streaming show CyberWrench and our podcast Hit Play).
I have written over 50 plays for the Wrench since becoming a Neo-Futurist, including: a shoe burlesque, an avant-garde Britney Spears homage, a psychosexual hazing involving the Muppets, an ARG, a musical quintet played on pieces of garbage, four earnest monologues, two ukulele songs, one very upsetting Easter egg hunt, and a whole lot of other high-quality nonsense. I am probably trying to write another new play right now.
I am also the creator of NYNF's upcoming full-length production Try This On For Me, an immersive experience about the agony, absurdity, and euphoria of trying to dress ourselves. Try This On For Me is the recipient of a Bel Geddes Design grant and is slated for production some time in 2022.
