Melbourne International Comedy Festival acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live. We acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' spirit, imagination and rich history of storytelling and humour that is an inspiration to all Australians.

We accept the invitation to walk together with First Nations people towards a more positive future for Australia, as described in the Uluru Statement From The Heart.

Mystery Radio Theatre Corpus Delicti!

La Mama presents

Mystery Radio Theatre Corpus Delicti!

It is 1952 and Vera Brady travels to a tropical island to solve a locked-room murder and must contend with killers, werewolves, voodoo and, worst of all, her idiot ex-husband. A thrilling new comedy whodunnit from the makers of Mystery Radio Theatre. Can you spot the killer?

Four suspects – the prim secretary, the tough bodyguard, the elderly nanny and the drunken groundskeeper. One of them must be the murderer. And possibly a werewolf? Vera Brady will need to keep her wit dry and her martinis drier if she is going to solve this puzzle. Join us for this ripping, old-fashioned, escapist murder mystery.

'A sublimely silly and frenetically farcical comedy.' The Melbourne Observer

'A surreal journey that builds in ludicrousness. The script is witty and fresh, keeping the audience guessing and trying to understand the absurdities that take place – only to be surprised.' Theatre Travels

Suitable for audiences 15+
