Having opened in 1988 and still playing today as the longest-running show in Chicago history, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind is an ensemble experiment in presenting “30 Plays in 60 Minutes.” Each two-minute play is performed in random order with an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest. This is a witty collection of comic, tragic, political, personal and abstract plays. Ready, set, GO!

“The most clever, most urgent show in town.” –Chicago Theatre
FAC’s ‘Too Much Light …’ is fabulous
“A+ … engaging (without being intimidating), high energy (but not amateurish), intellectually intriguing (unless you don’t want it to be) and just plain delightful … It comes across as part “Saturday Night Live,” part high school play, part black box think piece.” – The Gazette
