20 plays in 40 minutes: An Infinite Wrench Graduation Show

I’ve been taking a course with the SF Neo-Futurists for the past few weeks, and we’re doing our class show this Wednesday!
The staple Neo-Futurist show is The Infinite Wrench, an ongoing attempt to successfully perform 30 plays in 60 minutes. Since this is a class show, we’ll be making a smaller attempt: 20 plays in 40 minutes! (Slightly reduced number of plays! Same degree of difficulty!)
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll hopefully think about performance in a new way.
You’ll pay nothing and depart with valuable experience!
Seriously though: I love the neo-futurist aesthetic and I think it’s a wonderful thing for anyone to experience in any form. I’d be really happy if some fellow MeFites wanted to come and see what the fuss is about.

TEWS* ALERT

Trivia Early Warning System - In compensation for last week’s secretive alert. MeFites needed! Last week proved (as if more proof was needed) that ChrisR and I are not sufficient for victory.

Bean Plating Sea Monkeys

I know a few MeFites (besides myself) who'll be on the upcoming 2019 JoCo Cruise. Shall we arrange a meetup on the high seas? I expect we can coordinate via Twit-ARR if we can't figure out a time/place before hand.
