Murder for Two
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. A loving homage to the canon of murder mystery plays, MURDER FOR TWO is a 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 in Newbury from 26 January to 25 February 2017, prior to its run at The Other Palace. Sheppard’s previous work at the Watermill includes the hit 2015 revival of Oliver!
