The infinite wrench

The Infinite Wrench (formerly known as Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind) premiered in New York for an open run in 2004. Every Friday and Saturday the New York Neo-Futurists write, direct, and perform original, short-form, non-illusory plays. The result is a collage of diverse plays that are a fusion of sport, poetry, and living newspaper. 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 audiences including those un-reached or unmoved by traditional theater.

Joey has been with the company since its inception, having written, directed, and performed in The Infinite Wrench for 12 uninterrupted years. The Infinite Wrench continues to run every Friday and Saturday in the East Village where the Neo-Futurists have, to-date, presented over 5000 original plays.

Rizzolo confronts the audience with its racism. His work is not about creating illusions in the theater. What he does is create an entertaining forum for discussing the issues.

Like the glory days of Saturday Night Live, [The Infinite Wrench] is not just entertaining, but faintly surreal.
