It isn’t like a Shakespearean play. Santa Fe High drama is performing Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind. The structure of this play is different from all the other plays they’ve done. It is very fun for people to watch since there are 30 plays performed in only 60 minutes. The play is intended to be a mixture of autobiography and performance art.

The play is difficult to perform. It’s hard to get all the settings to move and the accessories. It is also hard for those who are in charge of the technical things like the lighting, sound, etc. There are also backstage helpers, people who help with wardrobe and makeup.

The play was developed by a small ensemble called the Neo-Futurists in Chicago in 1988. The title comes from an autistic kid who would smash light bulbs and say, “Too much light makes the baby go blind.”

This is a fun production because the order that the plays go depends on the audience. “This is a big ensemble piece that had a lot of people involved,” says Mr. Meschefske, the coordinator for this play.

This play will be performed Feb. 28, March 1, and March 2. Admission is $5 plus what each individual gets when they roll the dice to pay on top of that.
