Trapped in the Netflix
Trapped in the Netflix is a one-person show pulsing with Netflix Original parodies, impressions, and existential panic. During a rainy Chicago night, a freak electrical storm sucks our protagonist inside the Netflix. Once trapped, he attempts his escape: but everyone’s beloved SVOD platform injects him into a diverse cross-section of scenes from the likes of House of Cards, Black Mirror, and those painfully precious Mumblecore movies that you can only watch for like 12 minutes. This brisk production from Mishu Hilmy deconstructs some of our favorite films, genres, and TV shows for a frivolous evening of entertainment.

Past praise for Mishu Hilmy:

"Fantastic…funny, sharp." - Drew Wancket, Chicago Stage Standard

"Swift, Engaged, Ridiculous.” - Justin Hayford, Chicago Reader

"Something I happily cannot unsee." - Jena Cutie, Chicago Reader
