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

by Greg Allen

It’s a race against time as an ensemble of actors try to beat the clock and perform 30 plays in 60 minutes (or less)! Some are funny, some are poignant, some are just plain bizarre, and NONE of them are suitable for children! Who decides the order of these plays? The audience! Buckle up for hilarious, awkward, and sometimes downright uncomfortable audience participation.  Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (

November 3 and 4 at 7:30 p.m.

November 5 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
