Out To Get You

Dystopia that you choose...

Take a break from our less-than-perfect world to visit one that is much, much worse. Only entertainingly so.
In this show, our ensemble will bring to life the dystopia that you choose. You, and your inner George Orwell, will see the entirety of that world—from its opulent oppressors down to its lowest rungs. Every night will be different, but you can expect the soot of Blade Runner, the bleakness of The Hunger Games, and the grime of Mad Max.
So join us for a totally totalitarian evening of entertainment that puts the 'treat' in 'maltreatment.'

Note: This is not an invitation. It is an order.

Under The Gun Theater is excited to announce Game, Set, Match a new competitive improvisational comedy show which pits two teams of improvisers against each other in a fast paced game based format (think "Who's Line is it Anyway?") that puts the audience in the judge's seat. Game, Set, Match is scenic driven improv comedy where each scene is inspired by an audience suggestion and audience members score each scene. All improvisers want the audience to like them, in Game, Set, Match we're more up front about it.

In 2010 Angie McMahon was 6 months pregnant. She organized the Rally To Restore Sanity event in Chicago on 10/30/10. In 38 days she got $25,000 donated, permits from the city denied, and a jumbo tron. 7,000 people showed up to the event, and about 4,000 left before it ended (but not before each and everyone of them screamed at her for various reasons). This is her story.
