Murder Village: An Improvised Whodunnit

Following a sell-out run with extra shows at the 2021 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Murder Village is back for more cunningly improvised whodunnits.

Immerse yourself in the cozy world of a 1950's 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 always an 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!
