The Hit

by Strangeface Theatre

A very black comedy - Mikey AKA The Ghost is a hitman exposed to parts of the brain he never thought he would see. After an accidental death, some nagging last words, and a chance encounter in a steam bath he is holed up in his New York apartment trying to straighten things out. Bizarre events play out at the Mexico border, on a trampoline via in the aisles of Toys R Us.

Pitched on the extremes of mind and body, this “exceptional puppetry” from award-winning Strangeface draws on the latest thinking in cognitive neuroscience to question the way we see the world.

With creative team members from War Horse, The Hit is something different! Breaking Bad meets Samuel Beckett in a show designed to blow your mind.
