Following a sold-out season at the 2021 Melbourne Comedy Festival, Murder Village is returning to Melbourne Fringe for more cunningly improvised whodunnits.
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 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 chapter of this critically acclaimed show is the same!
Warning: Contains some infrequent/low pressure audience interaction, potentially triggering content or themes, including Staged Violence, Drug References, Alcohol Use, Murder
