Want us to perform A Killing Game at your venue? Contact our touring producer Ronee Penoi at Ronee@theatrefromthedistrict.com.


In a not-so-distant time and place, a deadly plague begins killing the citizenry--inexplicably, indiscriminately, and fast! Can you play against death, and win? How far will you go? How much fun can you have? We can’t all die, can we? A Killing Game is dog & pony dc’s absurdist-play-meets-party-game that promises the most fun you'll ever have dying. A Killing Game weaves digital media--Twitter, texts, good old-fashioned calls--into the narrative so bring your cellphones and smartdevices.
