Murder Village: An Improvised Whodunnit

It’s Agatha Christie, improvised! Following an award-winning season at Sydney Fringe and sellouts at Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Brisbane Comedy Festival, Murder Village is back for more cunningly improvised whodunnits. And this time, there is a new sleuth on the case…

Immerse yourself in the cozy world of a 1950s Agatha Christie novel as Melbourne’s funniest improvisers craft eccentric characters and perplexing mysteries from your suggestions. Any of the village’s suspicious denizens could be dispatched at any moment, and any of them could be the murderer. It’s your secret ballot votes that determine who lives, who dies and who will be unmasked as the culprit.

In Murder Village, the local police inspector may be incompetent but thankfully there is a man of the cloth - and part-time amateur sleuth - on hand to sort the red herrings from the tell-tale clues. See if you can solve the crime first… whether you see one show or all of them, no two chapters of this critically acclaimed show are the same!
