SMASH THE PATRIARCHY
The award-winning New York Neo-Futurists are pleased to announce, SMASH THE PATRIARCHY, a special all-ladies edition of their celebrated late night show, THE INFINITE WRENCH, that unleashes a barrage of short plays 50 weeks a year. The shows will be presented at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10003) on Friday, March 24th and Saturday, March 25th at 10:30pm.
SMASH THE PATRIARCHY celebrates and dissects all that it means to be female by presenting honest experiences, biting social commentary and riotously funny observations. A diverse cast of women will deliver an eclectic menu of original plays in a patriarchal smashing weekend! “We want to honor and celebrate women during women's history month,” says ensemble member Meg Bashwiner. “This show certainly does that in the dynamic, hilarious, radical and uplifting way that only the New York Neo-Futurists can deliver.”
The New York Neo-Futurists are a collective of wildly productive writer-director-performers that create theater that is fusion of sport, poetry and living-newspaper; non-illusory, interactive performance that conveys experiences and ideas as directly and honestly as possible; immediate, irreproducible events at affordable prices.
The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays each one offering 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 diverse audiences.
The New York Neo-Futurists performing in Smash The Patriarchy are Cara Francis, Kyra Sims, Lindsay Brandon Hunter, Marta Rainer, Meg Bashwiner, Nessa Norich and Nicole Hill.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online at nynf.org, or by calling 866-811-4111.
