Murder Village: An Improvised Whodunnit

Welcome to Murder Village. Population: decreasing.

The evidence is in. After a critically-acclaimed smash-hit season at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe, you can’t miss this improvised homage to Agatha Christie at this year’s Melbourne International Comedy Festival. 
Meet a colourful cast of British eccentrics, each more suspicious than the last, and all played by some of the best improvising comedians from The Big HOO-HAA!, Impro Melbourne and Impromptunes. They’re trapped in a hilarious off-the-cuff mystery so fiendish that only a genius could work out whodunnit. The local police inspector may be incompetent, but luckily there’s a busybody old lady with twinkling eyes who has a few theories... 

Inspired by your suggestions, each Murder Village show is a brand-new puzzle for you to unravel. Your votes decide via secret ballot who lives, who dies and who will be unmasked as the killer. See one show or all ten, no mystery is the same!

This popular improvised format was developed for ImproMafia in Brisbane and played to rave reviews. Murder Village is appearing at Melbourne International Comedy Festival for the first time, and the destination... 

...Is murder!

'The perfect recipe for murder.' Weekend Notes 

'A hilarious piece of theatre. We shouldn’t be enjoying murder so much.' Scenestr

'A genius hybrid between a murder mystery and a professional long form improvised format.'  The Plus Ones

'An evening where revelling in death and murder is turned into wholesome fun.' Stage Whispers

'Highly recommended – silly, clever, unexpected, the audience was glued to their seats for the whole 60 minutes. See it at least once!'  Pop Culture-y
