Emmet Place Festive Market

The Comedy Improvised Halloween Murder Mystery

Thursday 27th to Saturday 29th October @ 8pm
Cork Arts Theatre, Cork

The Comedy Improvised Murder Mystery Gang are back again with their hilarious ‘off the cuff’ antics for three nights only!

This time they have gathered for a relaxed dinner party but there is never time to relax when this gang get together. Pretty soon things get out of hand with deadly (and hilarious) consequences.

With no script to fall back on the actors must improvise the entire plot with its many twists and turns. Once again the audience decide who the unfortunate victim and the mysterious murderer will be. And they will also provide hilarious 'secrets’ that the cast read out at random moments to add mayhem and mirth to the proceedings. All of this is completed before the show starts so that the audience can then sit back, relax and let the hilarity unfold.

Starring: Dominic MacHale (The Young Offenders), Laura O’Mahony (Republic of Telly), Adrian Scanlan (Snatch Comedy), Annette Roche and Laura Harte (The Improv Panto).
