A hilarious high-energy musical whodunit, Murder For Two is a madcap murder mystery with a twist. Two actors play thirteen characters…and the piano in this acclaimed new musical. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, Murder For Two is a hysterical blend of music, mayhem and murder.

When famous novelist Arthur Whitney is found dead at his birthday party, it’s time to call in the detectives. The only problem is, they’re out of town. Enter Officer Marcus Moscowicz, a neighbourhood cop who dreams of climbing the ranks. With the clock ticking, it’s up to Marcus to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime before the real detective arrives.

Murder For Two was recently a huge hit Off-Broadway. The production will have its British stage premiere at The Watermill Theatre prior to it run at The Other Palace, London. It will be directed by Luke Sheppard and produced by The Other Palace’s Artistic Director Paul Taylor-Mills- the duo behind the Olivier award winning musical In The Heights.
