A Murder is Performed
  • Brighton Fringe

Our audience create 2 brand new characters but, before you know it, one is dramatically murdered, & the other is framed for the crime. In farcical style, our hero dashes from place to place, encountering romances & adventures along the way.

Will he escape jail? Will the murderer get their comeuppance? Find out as a brand new story unfolds during each improvised comedy performance.

An interesting theme is why we turned to improv. Weve been praised for our dry wit & always going for the punchline " this happens because were all standup comedians, who wanted to do improv as a way of freeing ourselves up creatively. The funniest material is always the stuff you think of first, and in what we do thats exactly what comes out.

Plus, we get to find out how the story ends at exactly the same time the audience does!

Weve been together for 18 months, having performed about 25 shows, with about 10 years improv experience between us.

Grace, laughs & many a witty comment " WhatsPeenSeen

The fun comes from watching the journey unfold " Views from the Gods

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
