The Shows:

1. L'IMITATION of LIFE by Ricky Graham and Running with Scissors

Stage 773 (1225 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60657)
Running: Mar. 29- May 6 (reserve seats via Google link)

In this hilarious parody of the 1959 film Imitation of Life, Lana Turner is a determined white widow and single mother with aspirations of becoming a Broadway sensation. When Lana meets Annie Johnson, a struggling single African-American mother, the two team up and take on the world as Lana does whatever it takes to make it in show business  while Annie takes care of the homestead and raises both daughters.

The two women face insurmountable challenges led by their daughters. There's the blonde, perky and so white it's frightening" Suzie, daughter of Lana Turner, and the raven-haired rebellious light-skinned beauty, Sara Jane, daughter of Annie. Sara Jane learns the hard truth about acceptance and the color of your skin  especially when she tries to pass as white.

2. The Golden Girls: The Lost Episodes, Vol. 2 by David Cerda  

Mary's Attic (5400 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60640)
Running: June 19- Sept. 7 (reserve seats through Brown Paper Tickets link)

When Handbag opened THE GOLDEN GIRLS  THE LOST EPISODES in June 2017, it was supposed to be short summer treat for Handbag audiences but quickly turned into a sold-out, seven month run! Now, these lovely women from the classic TV sitcom return with new stories of friendship, love and cheesecake  all with the Handbag twist audiences have come to love!

3. The Artificial Jungle by Charles Ludlam

Stage 773 (1225 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60657)
Running: Sept. 20- Oct. 28 (Reserve seats through Google link)

THE ARTIFICIAL JUNGLE is Charles Ludlams last play and a perfect vehicle for Hell in a Handbag! Chester Nurdiger is a mild-mannered fellow who lives in the back of the pet shop he runs with his sultry wife Roxanna and his overly protective mother. Roxanna is bored to death, but when a handsome drifter walks into their lives, things get interesting perhaps even deadly?! Part Double Indemnity, part The Postman Always Rings Twice, THE ARTIFICIAL JUNGLE is throwback to the classic age of film noir by the master and founder of the Ridiculous Theater movement.

4. The Golden Girls: Bea Afraid - The Halloween Edition

Stage 773 (1225 W Belmont Ave, Chicago, IL 60657)
Running: Oct. 6- Nov. 3 (late night and some prime time) (Reserve seats through Google link)

Its not Halloween without a Handbag show, so Artistic Director David Cerda is conjuring up a special edition of its hit TV sitcom parody. Better get your tickets early  Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia are only back for seven wig-raising performances. Bea afraid, Bea very afraid!

5. SnowGirls

Mary's Attic (5400 N Clark St, Chicago, IL 60640)
Running: Nov. 15- Dec. 30 (reserve seats through Brown Paper Tickets link)

Hell in a Handbag Productions presents the World Premiere of SnowGirls. About a girl who dreams of pole dancing. North Pole dancing...A musical parody of that Vegas film!
