Strangeface Theatre: The Hit


Buy Tickets

With creative team members from WarHorse, The Hit is Breaking Bad meets Samuel Beckett, with puppetry designed to blow your mind.

Strangeface Theatre Company’s ‘The Hit’ is a very black comedy –  Mikey AKA The Ghost is a hitman exposed to parts of the brain he never thought he’d see. After an accidental death, some nagging last words, and a chance encounter in a steam bath, he’s holed up in his New York apartment trying to straighten things out. Bizarre events play out at the Mexico border, on a trampoline and via 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.


“Strangeface’s wonderful storytelling skills… exceptional puppetry” The Edinburgh Guide

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

“It’s a distinctly dreamlike tale, with seamless fluidity. There’s real thought here, the storytelling layered and deep” The Stage

“Some of the best puppetry …of any Edinburgh show you are likely to see” Three Weeks

“Visually stunning….Inventive puppetry and smart comedy, a fine way to spend the afternoon” The Wee Review
