About this Show
Two performances featuring accessible services for people with disabilities
Friday, June 2 - ASL and Open Caption
Saturday, June 3 - Audio Description and Touch Tour
The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different—some are funny, others profound. Some are elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or put to song. All of the plays are truthful and tackle the here-and-now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers. The Infinite Wrench is The Neo-Futurists’ ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to the present audience, including those unreached or unmoved by other types of theater.
In pursuit of this mission, The Neo-Futurists are proud to present two performances featuring accessible services for people with disabilities. For people who are deaf or hard of hearing, the performance on Friday, June 2 will feature Open Captioning and ASL Interpretation. For people who are blind or have low vision, the performance on Saturday, June 3 will feature Audio Description and a pre-performance Touch Tour.
The 1700 Theatre is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with an induction hearing loop for people who use personal hearing devices that have a T-coil. Front Bar, directly in front of the 1700 Theatre, has a push-button entrance, wheelchair accessible seating and multi-stall all-gender restrooms.
LookOut is Steppenwolf’s performance series that presents the work of artists and companies across genre and form. Emerging artists and performance legends, quintessential Chicago companies and young aspiring ensembles, familiar Steppenwolf faces and new friends.
The 1700 Theatre is general admission, with an assortment of cabaret-style seating options, including high stools and low chairs clustered around tables. We do not reserve seating unless you have a mobile disability. If you have particular seating preferences, we recommend arriving a half hour before show time to reserve the seat of your choice.
