Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes)

A late-night interactive phenomena for 30 years, Greg Allen’s Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind was the longest-running show in Chicago history. This ensemble experiment in presenting "30 Plays in 60 Minutes" has also surprised audiences for years in New York and San Francisco.

Our intrepid Neo-Futurists race a 60-minute timer to perform each two-minute play in random order, based on the spontaneous whims of the audience. Themes range from comic, tragic, and political to even personal or abstract.

Tickets are $12, and only $8 for returning guests. Costumed Theme Nights (listed below) complete a unique and raucous audience experience. Plus a Beer & Wine bar to support the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival. Produced by breakout troupe The Old Mask Era and Directed by Calliope and Denim Weisman!
