The Neo-Futurists present their annual Pride Weekend benefit: 30 Queer Plays in 60 Straight Minutes, a special edition of Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes that pulls favorite queer-sexuality and gender bending themed plays from the past year into one fabulous Pride show, to benefit and support local LGBTQ organizations. This year’s beneficiary is UCAN’s LGBTQ Host Home Program. Due to overwhelming demand, The Neos Pride Weekend has added a Thursday night performance, giving audiences an extra chance to celebrate and support Chicago’s LGBTQ community with the Neo-family.
