The Racket

  • Secret Location Near 16th St BART 16th & Mission St San Francisco, CA 94110 (map)
San Francisco’s newest immersive show is a Neo-Noir adventure, starring you.

Part parlour game, part theater piece, part rat race, The Racket invites participants into the opening scene of their favorite Noir film, then turns the plotting over to them. Furnished with a new profession, audience members must navigate an underground party where deals are made in back rooms, black markets blossom, and everyone is competing to have the most money at the end of the night.

As the evening gets going, guests can team up with or turn the tables on other party-goers, crack a safe, recover a priceless artifact, or murder anyone who isn’t watching their back.

It's a performance with no actors, a game with (almost) no rules, a Film Noir fever dream that blurs the line between play and player, hero and villain.

The dress code is black. And to kill.

Doors will open at 7:30pm, and the game will start promptly at 8:00.

Until then, stay sharp.
