The ‘Neos’ are an interesting group. As an experimental theatre group, they rose from their very humble beginnings to become one of the most highly regarded theatre group of their kind nationwide. They are an adventurous, witty and interactive troupe that thrives on the concept of the future and are constantly looking ahead.
Their new show, Modern Toy Theatre of David Commander, focuses on several thought provoking concepts. The first piece, In Flight, focuses on our ability as a species to look the other way, in a sense, our apathy. The second piece moves from our apathy to our disconnection between the function and value of food which leads to nearly half of globally produced food being wasted.
The show is being preformed from Jan 22-24 at 7:30 PM. Just head to the The Neo-Futurarium–which is just a couple blocks from the Berwyn stop off the red line–for the performance. It is being preformed . Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here.

Who knew that when the apocalypse came Bart Simpson would be the only one to survive? I sure didn’t. Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play tells the story of a band of survivors using Bart Simpson as the cornerstone to rebuilding civilization. Acclaimed playwright Anne Washburn is able to take what is just a small part of this era’s pop culture and turns into the very real bases of another in her original, innovative, and vibrant play.
The play is ongoing through March 1 at Theater Wit. Shows are Thursday through Friday at 7:30 PM and Sunday at 2 PM. Tickets are $15-70 and can be purchased here.
