Nobody said it would be easy, but 12 years down the line, the Neo-Futurists are still out there bringing Chicago and its adjacent territories the finest in staged readings of terrible movie scripts. This year’s series begins with Caged!, a forgotten 1950 noir about a women’s prison. It seems to have not altogether awesomely been a propaganda movie about how going to jail makes you a lesbian, but the Neo-Futurarian rendition featured radiant off-the-cuff work from Ida Cuttler and the always-excellent Julie Williams, whom I’ve enjoyed in a number of storefront shows since last year. Next up is Face/Off (1997), which I actually like, followed by Suspiria (1977), and then the made-for-TV movie about venereal disease Someone I Touched (1975). Special mention must go to Dina Walters, whose preview for Face/Off was sublime. —Max Maller
