Serial Killers: Season 13 Playoffs

APRIL 7 - MAY 12, 2018
Late-Night Saturdays at 11pm
Just $10!    Buy Tickets Now

HOW IT USUALLY WORKS: Each week, three continuing stories face off against two new tales. At the end of the show, you vote for the three stories that you would like to see continue on to next Saturday night, where their subsequent episodes will then be pitted against two completely new storylines. Each week's serials could live on for weeks... or be quietly smothered in their sleep Ė itís up to you. But whichever pieces you vote for, one thing is for certain - by the end of the evening, you will be a Serial Killer.

THE PLAYOFFS: Our THIRTEENTH year of serialized storytelling culminates as this season's sixteen most popular storylines go head to head in a weekly elimination round. Only the last two serials left standing after your votes are tallied will get to finish their stories. Winner gets $300 and the option to submit their storyline into Sacred Fools' New Works Development Program!

Performing on the Broadwater Mainstage (Entrance at 1076 Lillian Way)

RECOMMENDED / BEST OF L.A. 2015 - L.A. Weekly! "...not only a phenomenal talent and play incubator of industrial scale but one of the surest late-night gut-busting laugh bets in town."

A "medley of hysterical chaos!" -SoCal.com
