It’s just a job interview. There’s nothing to be afraid of…

Job hunting can be a real bitch, huh? Hours spent updating your resume with blatant lies about your employment history, days spent waiting to hear back from potential employers, months spent hoping the perfect job will fall onto your lap without having to really work for it.

And then you score the job interview! But this isn’t just any job interview. This one is a real killer…

THE HITMEN follows six unemployed hopefuls as they take part in a group interview with the hope of obtaining the job of their dreams – a Hitman at K.O.C, Australia’s largest professional agency of contract killers and assassins.

Hilariously disturbing and humorously unhinged, THE HITMEN churns the stomach and tickles the funny bone as it propels the audience through the dark spectrum of human behaviour and corporate governance.

"Black and humorous... a witty thriller commentary on unemployment and the crime underclass... such an entertaining and fun night out for lovers of theatre."
