About Hitch*Cocktails

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, gun play, beautiful women, 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.

The show will also feature a live jazz band and a few parlor games so the audience may join in on the "refreshments."

Hitch*Cocktails has been running off and on in the city of Chicago since 2012. We have enjoyed runs at iO Chicago and The Annoyance Theater.

 

About Our Company

Unique to Is This Your Homework? Productions is the inclusion of costume and set pieces expected in traditional theater into an entirely improvised show. It is a new and challenging approach to bring the best of these two traditions together into one cohesive and lively theater experience; the honest, playful, and always liveliness of improv theater with the rich character development and visceral impact of a theatrical stage setting. A chasm between these two traditions lay deep within our communities, but we wish to pursue this challenge and grow as artists examining what unknown magic may yet be possible – with a sense of humor, of course.

Other shows produced by Is This Your Homework? Productions include The 'Verse (Another Firefly Story), Who-Prov, A Big Lebowski Christmas Musical: It's A Wonderful Life, Dude and M.I.N.T.
