Beautiful Monster is a new play depicting the final hours of the life of Mary Shelley, author of Frankenstein. On the eve of her expected death, Mary, gripped by madness, is visited by the dead: her husband and Romantic poet Percy Shelley, their shared lover Lord Byron, and literary rival John William Polidori, author of the first known vampire fiction — fiction begun, along with Frankenstein, on that now famous night of ghost stories on the banks of Lake Geneva. As the clock ticks toward Mary's death, she recalls in a series of hallucinations her heart-wrenching confrontations with Percy's formidable mother and the tender friendship of her loving stepsister. She's even confronted by the monster she created.
Note: This show includes nudity and sexual content.

The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience.

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 unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.

Shakespeare's dark comedy examines the danger of placing power in the wrong hands.

Director Christina Sheehan's fantasy-inspired design transports audiences to an England at war with itself, gallivanting through a Sherwood Forest that serves as the dual playground battlefield where Robin and his Merry Men defy tyranny. This sprawling, action-packed retelling of the Robin Hood story gives us characters that challenge and reinvent the myth including a Maid Marian with a sword who can do her own saving, a female Little John who is as quick witted as she is quick with her quarter staff, and several other cross-gendered casting scenarios which elevate the stakes of both the conflict and the comedy in a script by Larry Blamire that walks the line between The Adventures of Robin Hood and Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Together these characters will stand against the power of King John and the Sherriff of Nottingham.
"We're not one, we're many. When heroes stand together…work together, not a power in all of England can stop us."
