Originally conceived and produced by creator Greg Allen, Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind begat the movement now referred to as Neo-Futurism. UnSemble members write, direct, and perform their own original plays. Each play is delineated by a simple “Go” to begin and “Curtain” to end it, and the audience chooses the order of the plays based on a menu of numbered titles. At each performance, an audience member rolls an additional six-sided die to decide how many plays will be replaced for the following weekend of performances, ensuring that audiences will never see the same show twice. The short plays vary in length, content, and format and can include silent pieces, songs, audience participation, and more.
