30 Neo-Futurist Plays from Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 plays in 60 minutes)

Patrick Tangredi

Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind
This collection of 30 two-minute plays combines a little bit of everything – comic, tragic, political, personal, and abstract plays! Each brief play is performed in a random order decided by an interactive audience. An onstage 60-minute timer keeps everyone honest. If the cast doesn’t finish all 30 plays in 60 minutes or less, we’ll buy a pizza!

Forewarning: references to violence, sex, suicide, politics, and the absurdities of life. NOT appropriate for humans under 15.

Accommodation request statement

PCC is committed to providing access and accommodation for people who experience disabilities. Accommodation requests should be made by emailing or calling Patrick Tangredi patrick.tangredi@pcc.edu or 971-722-4323. Because some accommodations take time to implement, it is most helpful to receive requests with as much advance notice as possible.


When attending a PCC Sylvania performance, please note that on weekdays (Mon-Fri), a parking pass ($2 minimum) pass is required. We suggest parking in Lot 7. Parking passes are not required on weekends. Though you can park in either lots 7 or 9, Lot 9 is the most accessible to the PAC, and Lot 7 has a more reliable parking pass kiosk (according to patrons).
