NEW SHOW DEC 20 & 21!

Written by Sid Feldman

Directed by Wm. Bullion

The Conspirators invite you to end 2019 with a bang and Rand/Schultz, an hour-long cabaret satire that highlights the irreverent antics and punk-rock nihilistic tragicomedy The Conspirators are becoming known for.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is trying to keep her Holiday TV Special on the right track, despite the best efforts of the agents of progressive chaos. Her plucky acting troupe attempts to change the world through the valiant efforts of Satire! The Conspirators perform Rand/Schultz in their infamous neo-Commedia style called “The Style,” and share the stage with invited cabaret acts (TBD). Stay for the X-mas party after!

TWO NIGHTS ONLY!
Friday and Saturday, December 20-21 at 8:00 pm

Location: The Charnel House (3421 W. Fullerton Ave. in Chicago)

From our sordid past…

Accidental Death of a Black Motorist

Adapted from Dario Fo by Sid Feldman
Directed by Wm. Bullion

“A necessary play for our time. The troupe, under Wm. Bullion’s loose but propulsive direction, delivers as fearlessly funny a show as I have seen on a local stage in quite some time. Beneath adaptor Sid Feldman’s endless gags and comic riffs, there’s a deep and deadly serious examination of the racist assumptions and protective code of silence that make police brutality a chronic wound in Chicago’s soul.”

— Hugh Iglarsh, Newcity Stage

Full Cast:

Madison Boan, Kate Booth, Gunner Bradley, Nathaniel Fishburn, Sarah Franzel, Nicole Frydman, Anthony Hinderman, Ali Janes, Michael Lomenick, Meaghan Morris (u/s), Evan Richter (u/s), also featuring Sarah Scanlon and Tom Jasek on percussion.

Yankee Doodles: Let Treason Ring!

A Best-Of Revue, Plus Fresh Meat

Written by Sid Feldman, Wm. Bullion & The Conspirators
Directed by Wm. Bullion

“Here they come again, with Yankee Doodles: Let Treason Ring, which will continue to satirize in much the same manner. I will not be attending, for the simple reason that they told me not to at the end of The Deckchairs.”

— Zach Barr, Scapi Magazine

Full Cast:

Madison Boan, Wm. Bullion, Paul Bunton, Libby Conkle, Martin Downs, Nathaniel Fishburn, Sarah Franzel, Ryan Hake, Meaghan Morris, Ali Janes, Brian Rohde, Evan Richter, Paula Sjogerman, Featuring Sarah Scanlon on percussion

“An energized cast combines crackerjack timing with a winning playfulness!”

Newcity Stage

“RECOMMENDED! One of the ‘Best Plays in Chicago’…It’s in your face and makes sure you’re paying attention.”

“I’ve never seen a play so cogently argue for its own immediate closure. This is not
the backhand insult it likely appears to be!”
