The World Crime League presents We Were Only Henchmen, a super dark comedy by Andrew Rosdail, at the 2024 Minnesota Fringe Festival!

After a tough week of serving as punching bags for the city’s defenders, two henchmen hang out after hours, talking shop and reminiscing over past nefarious employers. Their night is soon interrupted by the arrival of one of the city’s greatest heroes and the discovery of his dark secret. Directed by Andrew Rosdail (who directed the 2022 Golden Lanyard Winner Peace Retreat with New Endeavors) and Andrew Rakerd (who directed last year’s World Crime League production of Uncle Walt)!

This play contains harsh language, drugs, and violence. Not for kids!
