‘If we don’t get this wrapped up soon, we’ll have another dead body on our hands...’

Back by popular demand following huge success in 2017, the madcap murder mystery returns to The Watermill Theatre for a limited run.

A high-energy musical whodunit, Murder For Two is a mystery with a twist. In this loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, two actors play thirteen characters... and the piano.

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.

A hysterical blend of music, murder and mayhem, Murder For Two thrilled audiences in 2017 during its UK premiere at The Watermill, before transferring to London.

Praise for Murder For Two, 2017:
