Missouri University of Science and Technology students in the spring directing class will perform “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes” by Greg Allen this month. The performance is a final project for the course.
Performances will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, May 4; Friday, May 5; and Saturday, May 6. All performances will take place in the Black Box Theatre in Room 143 Castleman Hall, located at the corner of 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
“Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes” was made famous by the Neo-futurists, an experimental theater troupe in Chicago. The show is R-rated and patrons are encouraged to refrain from bringing young children. The original script contains 75 different plays and the director can choose any of combination of 30 that they desire. Each show contains 30 independent scenes that range from the comedic to dramatic and everything in between.
Tickets are $5 for adults, youth and Missouri S&T students with valid ID. Tickets can be purchased at the door prior to performances.
