Serial Killers PLAYOFFS: Season 14

APRIL 6 - MAY 4
Late-Night Saturdays at 11pm in April
PRIME TIME CONCLUSION: Saturday, May 4 at 8pm
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 its 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 FOURTEENTH 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 - and win cash prizes!

Writers & directors, check out the NEW writers' guide; there are some new rules to the game this year - and exciting cash prizes sponsored by the Broadwater Plunge!

Performing on the Broadwater Main Stage (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."
