Not a Pyramid Scheme featuring Hellcat
Washington Improv Theater - June 3, 2023
"Not a Pyramid Scheme" is an improvised satire that takes aim at the world of Multi-Level Marketing (think essential oils and overpriced makeup). The show explores scammers, grifters, and the lies we tell ourselves (and each other) to get ahead.
Each performance of “Not a Pyramid Scheme” will create the story of an improvised brand-new MLM, exploring the world of its founder and members. The show will poke fun at capitalist excess and culty groupthink while honoring the realities of people who join MLMs looking to make a living. For audience members, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for you to see what it could be like to be your own boss and follow your dreams. Bring a friend (or 5!) to this show!
A Hellcat show is like a really strong Dirty Shirley: sweet at first, but sour and bitter underneath. We’re playful and fun, but also sharp and cutting, and we are equally committed to the absurd and the heartfelt — because we know that life is all things at once. When you leave a Hellcat show, you’ll ask questions like, “Is 4th wave feminism finally here?” “Should I start a commune with all my best girlfriends?” “Do these women have rabies?”
