The Hit

The Hit

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.

"A hilarious and engaging show, and I learnt a bit about my brain too” Audience Member

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.
