Murder, She Didn’t Write, the improvised murder mystery, makes West End debut

Murder, She Didn’t Write

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FRESH from a sell out season at the Edinburgh Fringe, Degrees of Error are bringing their hilarious and innovative Murder, She Didn’t Write to the Leicester Square Theatre on the last Sunday of every month during February, March and April.

In what is described as a riotous show, the audience becomes both author and sleuth as they are invited to help create their very own Agatha Christie-inspired masterpiece – and to watch it unfold on stage.

Every night, the talented company create a unique space where audiences can unleash their literary prowess and create an original and extremely comical improvised murder-mystery. Miss Crimson poisoned in the parlour? Mr Gold exploded by cannon in Sainsbury’s? You decide! But will you guess whodunit?

Using audience suggestions, evidence and ideas, the team create a bespoke world – and one lucky audience member gets to play God, choosing both the murderer and victim.

A unique format and an even more unique experience, Murder, She Didn’t Write will thrill all lovers of both classic crime fiction and top level on-the-hoof comedy.

Founded in 2010, Degrees of Error have recently been appointed as the first resident theatre company at the brand new Bristol Improv Theatre – the first theatre in Britain dedicated to the art of improv – where they rehearse and perform regularly. Their improvised murder mystery play Murder, She Didn’t Write has toured the UK and enjoyed sell-out runs at the Fringe since 2013.

Dates: Sunday, February 25, Sunday, March 25 and Sunday, April 29, 2018.

Time: 4pm.
