Who We Are










GREG ALLEN

is the founder and Artistic Director of The Neo-Futurists and creator of Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes), now in its 14th year of ongoing chaos. Greg is at least partially responsible for such Neo-Futurist productions as Lear's Shadow; Boxing Joseph Cornell, Crime & Punishment: A (mis) Guided Environmental Tour With Literary Pretensions, and My Father, The Chair. His adaptation of Kafka's The Trial, titled K., was seen in numerous Greg Allen productions in '96 and '97 and won him awards in New York City and at home. Last summer the fourth mounting of his co-production The Complete Lost Works of Samuel Beckett as Found In An Envelope (partially burned) in A Dustbin In Paris Labeled: "Never to be performed. Never. Ever. EVER! Or I'll Sue! I'LL SUE FROM THE GRAVE!!!" won the Overall Excellence Award at The New York International Fringe Festival and was then remounted in NYC this January to further riotous response.


ANDY BAYIATES

has been a Neo-Futurist since November, 1999. He's been performing Too Much Light… since then and also appearing in two other prime-time productions with The Neo-Futurists: The Unfinished Works Of Sir Linear Scribble and his own Andy Bayiates solo performance SubliMania, half of an evening shared with the mighty Stephanie Shaw in Neo Mondo Solo 2000: Duo Neurotica. Before moving to Chicago, Andy co-founded and performed with the Boston-based comedy troupe Grand Malarkey. His work has been produced in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and at The Actors Theatre of Louisville's 2Sth Annual Humana Festival. He is a part-time office assistant as well as an underpaid playwright and unpaid novelist.


HEATHER RIORDAN

has been a Neo-Futurist since 1990, writing and performing Too Much Light Hakes The Baby Go Blind more weeks than not for the last decade. Other shows with Greg Allen include K., Please Help He, I'm Falling; Seventy Scenes of Halloween, and The Neo-Futurists' Revenger's Tragedy. as well as occasional Heather Riordan guard duty in Crime and Punishment. Periodically, she performs with other theater companies, but that requires driving her car somewhere. In her non-Neo-Futurist life, Heather is a personal trainer and fitness instructor. She lives with her we're-not-really-married husband, David, and their two boxers, Greta and Linus.
