Chicago Women's Funny Festival 2019
It starts with an audience suggestion, then the players create a full-length thriller in the style of Alfred Hitchcock. There could be murder, car chases, gunplay, shady characters, exciting music and drinks…plenty of drinks. Since this is high-class crime, the stage is complete with a wet bar and the actors will be forced to partake as the plot develops. By the end of the show, you might not be able to stand the suspense and the actors might not be able to stand at all.
Voted Best Improv Troupe of 2016 by the Chicago Reader and runner-up in 2015 & 2017, Hitch*Cocktails has been performing at the Annoyance Theater for five years. We have performed around the country and been invited to host genre workshops at numerous theaters and one federal prison.
