Murder She Didn’t Write

Who can improvise a whodunnit and make it fabulously funny? The finger of suspicion points to Degrees of Error with their murder mystery, Murder She Didn’t Write.

It begins with the usual formula of suggestions from the audience, except this time there’s an extra challenge in that the actors have to create a drama surrounding a victim and killer, as well as motives for the rest of the cast, without giving the game away or losing the plot.

And so we, henceforth referred to as the groundsmen, look out for clues as the cast is gathered at a séance for The Case of the Straight Banana. The cast’s comic timing and ability to think on their feet is outstanding, with many flashes of brilliance - such as the quick response from Madam Scarlett (a clairvoyant author) when a fellow actor tests her with the question - what does her book title ABCDEFG stand for? "And Because Clues Don’t Exactly Flourish – Ghosts!"

With Cluedo-inspired names and some first class acting and improv, the result is a rip-roaring, polished performance.
