M**der Village: An Improvised Whodunnit
It’s M**der most foul. It’s the crime of the century. It’s Agatha Christie, improvised – and it’s playing The Butterfly Club in a new regular monthly show. After sell-out seasons at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe and 2019 Melbourne Comedy Festival, this cast of suspects are ready for more…
Step into the world of a classic English M**der mystery. M**der Village: An Improvised Whodunnit is the critically-acclaimed improvised comedy experience that brings the world of Christie to life, complete with mysterious characters, devilish red herrings, clever clues, and an amateur sleuth always on hand to outsmart local law officials and solve the case themselves.
Each month sees a new whodunnit spun from the mind of Melbourne’s best improvising comedians. Hailing from The Big HOO-HAA!, Impro Melbourne and Impromptunes, these hilarious performers weave your suggestions into a fiendishly clever puzzle for you to solve. Your votes decide via secret ballot who lives, who dies and who will be unmasked as the killer. No two shows are ever the same!
M**der Village opens its gates to visitors on the final Saturday night of each month. You are cordially invited to join us inside for an evening of high tea, bridge… and M**der!
