About The Book of Maggie:

Death & Pretzels presents the Chicago premiere of a new dark comedy by Brendan Bourque-Sheil, THE BOOK OF MAGGIE

Judas Iscariot and Pontius Pilate spend their eternal time in hell, drinking, smoking and tending to potted plants. Their plans for the afterlife change when, from on high, they're offered an opportunity for redemption by helping two mortal women- Maggie and Joan. With some reluctant help from Saint Peter, Judas and Pilate find helping these women might mean more than just saving themselves.

*This production includes gunshots and themes of suicide*


Directed by Madison Smith, Stage Managed by Lili Bjorklund, featuring designs by Matt Orenstein, Charles Blunt and Bridget Vacha

About Death & Pretzels:

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 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 American premiere of James Odin Wade's Helmut's Big Day, and the world premieres of Paul Pasulka's Gruoch, or Lady Macbeth, and Joey Katsiroubas & Dan Hass' Musical Therapy.
