The Infinite Wrench with the NY Neo Futurists!
Flying V is thrilled to bring the the NY Neo Futurists to the DC Metro Area with the regional premiere of their production of THE INFINITE WRENCH at 7pm and 10pm on Friday, March 20th at the Silver Spring Black Box Theatre!
The Infinite Wrench is a barrage of 30 original plays performed in a random order theatrical race against an onstage clock set for one hour. Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, 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 audiences including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.
Different show every time! If you've seen the show once, you've seen the show once.
Friday, March 20th
Performances begin at 7pm & 10pm

The Neo's were last seen in DC area during the Chicago Neo Futurists' runs of Too Much Light Make The Baby Go Blind at Woolly Mammoth Theatre. While that show is no longer a part of their repertoire, THE INFINITE WRENCH has filled its spot as the constantly changing staple of the organization.

About THE NEO FUTURISTS: The New York Neo-Futurists are a diverse collective of writer-director-performers. They create theater that is a fusion of storytelling, sport, poetry, and living-newspaper. Through this, they foster a spontaneous community embracing those unreached or unmoved by conventional theater and inspiring them to thought, feeling, and action. Every week the New York Neo-Futurists create a show in Manhattan called The Infinite Wrench: the award-winning, energetic, always changing attempt to perform thirty original plays in about an hour. The show has an open run every weekend in the East Village and is a collage of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental. Since opening in 2004, the NY Neos have premiered more than 5500 new plays.
Aside from running a weekly late-night show, they have produced several award-winning main-stage productions including: Steve: A Docu-Musical, The Human Symphony, The Complete and Condensed Stage Directions of Eugene ONeill: Vol. 1, Locker #4173b. Collectively they have been nominated for three Drama Desk Awards and more than a dozen New York Innovative Theatre Awards, and in 2017 The Infinite Wrench won the NY IT Award for Outstanding Performance Art Production. NY Neo-Futurists have toured to the Edinburgh Fringe and all around the United States, most notably to the Alden Theater, Foothills Performing Arts Center, Austin College, Grinnell College, Sarah Lawrence, URI, University of Texas, Hamilton, NYU, and Out of Bounds Comedy Festival. They also have been featured in The New York Times, The New York Post, and Howl Around. More info: www.nynf.org
