The San Francisco Neo-Futurists
EXIT Theatre, 156 Eddy St, SF
December 1, 2017 to February 17, 2018

Out with the old, in with the Neo-Future! The San Francisco Neo-Futurists are thrilled to present The Infinite Wrench, our ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to audiences, including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater. The Infinite Wrench is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays that will never ask you to suspend your disbelief. Join us as we test, experiment and create an ever-evolving show to contain the irrepressible, the honest, the WTF, and the new.

In 2010 she moved to San Francisco to help tech companies with writing and marketing. She is the creator of a resistance-inspired zine project: America, I love you but you're breaking me down.

Simon Pond joined the San Francisco Neo-Futurists in 2016. Before that he was in Southern California where he trained at UCB theatre and the Groundlings. And before that, and extending back in time to the moment of his birth, he was based in Toronto. In Canada, his live performance and radio sketch comedy work got him nominated for two Canadian Comedy Awards. He also worked for a couple years for The Second City onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines, living at sea, and making people laugh. Recently, you may have seen Simon appear in commercials for various products and services before you watched a youtube video. He hopes you didn't skip past him! Simon currently has a baby that he loves a whole lot.
