Death & Pretzels is a Chicago based theater company dedicated to exploring oddity, antiquity and ensemble built experiences- we have a vested interest in producing works that are long-forgotten, oft-neglected or out-of-the box. We strive to create theater you can't see anywhere else. 
D&P was born in April of 2014 when a group of artists came together to collaborate on a production of S. Ansky's The Dybbuk, a 100 year old Yiddish ghost story. D&P's first production ignited a passion for stories told through a strong ensemble, featuring bold, interesting female characters and themes often centered around the occult, religion and the the exploration of the unknown. 
Death & Pretzels has had the honor of presenting the Chicago premieres of Chiara Atik's Women, Steve Yockey's very still & hard to see, Adam Harrell’s The Basement Company, The United States premiere of James Odin Wade’s Helmut’s Big Day, and the world premieres of Paul Pasulka's Gruoch, or Lady Macbeth and the musical comedy, Musical Therapy, by Joey Katsiroubas and Dan Hass.
