Neo-Lab presents the Second Workshop Presentation of Remember the Alamo Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 7:30 p.m.Created by Neo-Futurist Ensemble Member Nick Hart Directed by Neo-Futurist Artistic Director & Ensemble Member Kurt Chiang Ticket Price: $8 Tickets and information available at neofuturists.org or 773.878.4557

An ensemble led by Nick Hart will take over The Neo-Futurist Theater, refuse to leave, and obstruct all production in the theater until the audience, actors and management work to recreate the Battle of the Alamo in its entirety, leading to its sad bloody conclusion. This second lab performance will continue to explore modes of reenacting one of the country's most peculiar, elusive, and aggrandized moments in military history. This presentation will feature performances from Nick Hart, Ida Cuttler and Steve Mosqueda.

Neo-Lab is an original works residency, originally launched by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, that annually commissions one new play anchored by innovative approaches to creation and shares public readings and presentations of the work in progress. This is The Neo-Futurists' third Neo-Lab commission, after producing Tif Harrison's Saturn Returns in 2016 and Kirsten Riiber's Tangles & Plaques in 2017.
