UPTOWN — For the second year in a row, the Neo-Futurists will be taking their signature show on the road.
In the coming months, they troupe will be performing "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind" on the South and West sides as part of the city's Night Out in the Parks Program. At 7 p.m. Aug. 20 and Aug. 21, they'll perform at Harrison Park, 1824 S. Wood St.
In the fall, they'll perform at the Don Nash Community Center, at 1833 E. 71st St. The show will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 2 and 2 p.m. Oct. 3.
Last year, the troupe performed in Pilsen's Dvorak Park and Washington Park Refectory.
“The show at Dvorak last year was really fun and the crowd was super generous as an audience," said Neo-Futurists Artistic Director Kurt Chiang. "It felt like a good fit, which makes sense because Neo-Futurism is all about acknowledging the space and the people. We didn't need to bring a rotating, mechanical smokestack, or anything like that. Just ourselves and some plays we knew people would like. And four buckets of bouncy balls."
The Neo-Futurists' signature show is the longest-running production in Chicago, being performed since 1988. It's an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in one hour.
Doors open 30 minutes before the show. And the performances are free.
