30 plays in 60 minutes? You bet! Directed by our beloved Jane Baker, TMLMTBGB (as it is affectionately known) is a collection of wildly funny plays written by The Neo Futurists, who pioneered this new form of theater with this play, which went on to become Chicago’s longest running show, now in its 27th year and the most produced and the ultimate Neo-Futurist experience.
What is a “New-Futurist” experience, you ask? The Neo-Futurist aesthetic demands that everything that transpires in their theater be non-illusory, which is to say that they pretend nothing; actors only play themselves. The plays are wildly eclectic, touching on all genres and tones; they may be political, satirical, personal, tragic, comic, abstract, musical, surreal, or poetic.
The bottom line is that Neo-Futurism does not buy into the “suspension of disbelief "—it does not attempt to take the audience anywhere else at any other time with any other people. The idea is to deal with what is going on right here and now - an improvers dream!
