OY! is a collection of eight 10-minute comedies, each illustrating the meaning of a Yiddish word -- with story lines including the untold stories of Eve and Adam, Einstein's demanding mother, the divorce trial of God and the human, the use of unkosher food as an aphrodisiac, and three men in a sauna who communicate using only the word "oy." Appealing to audiences of all faiths and all backgrounds, OY! is a tribute to the absurdity and comedy of the condition universal to everyone: that of being human. Learn More

It was hilarious, ackward...yet fun!! its better to go one time ony even though they say you should come back the next week for more...basically what i saw the first week, i saw it again the next. so they are not quite honest when they say its a new play every week. Also dont believe in "if the theater is full, we order pizza" yeah they order one pie, for almost 6o something or more people??????????? i guess their math is bad...but i still recommend it to everyone your going to be confused yet entertained!! they are hilarious!!

Created by Greg Allen
Written by the New York Neo-Futurists
The show is an ever-changing attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes—an original concept by Greg Allen and the Neo-Futurists. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. The performers always appear as themselves on stage, speaking directly from their personal experiences. Each short play is written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with 29 other plays through high energy audience participation. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. Each night of performance, the Neo-Futurists aim to create an unreproducable living newspaper of the comic and tragic, the political and personal, the visceral and experimental.
