A show that’ll kill, but whodunnit and how? The improviser. In the theatre. With the mimed prop.

The classic board game comes to life in an improvised murder mystery other shows can’t hold a candlestick to. Six colourful characters with suspect motives, all gunning for the true killer’s confession. You could cut the tension with a knife.

Pipe up with clues to help solve the crime. You’ll get so roped in you can’t wrench out of your seat.
