A farcical murder mystery in two acts, conceived by the award-winning improvisational company Theatre Mischief.
Henry Lewis, Jonathan Sayer and Henry Shields are members of Mischief, a company dedicated to creating engaging and exciting short-form and long-form improvised theatre of an excellent standard through well-honed improvisational technique and strong theatrical ensemble work, formed of students and graduates of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). Founded in 2008, the award-winning company has performed around the UK, creating new long-form and short-form show formats to thousands of people.
