Blood, violence, that crazy bat with the nails — it doesn't all just make itself. To get a show like Hack/Slash ready for the stage takes an immense amount of behind the scenes work.

Hack/Slash is a co-production of Strangeloop Theatre and CIC Theater. The adaptation of the cult horror comic book series by Tim Seeley follows the story of horror victim survivor Cassie Hack who, together with her disfigured sidekick Vlad, travels the country (and sometimes the underworld) fighting evil slashers who refuse to just lay down and die even after being burned, impaled and shot 20 times.

Hack/Slash opens Friday, September 12, and runs through Saturday, November 1, on Friday and Saturday nights at 8 p.m. Please note, there is no performance on Friday, September 19. The performances will be held at CIC Theater (1422 W. Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL 60613). Tickets are $15 and are available in advance through Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.
