Improv Murder Mystery

Thursday 26th to Saturday 28th October @ 8pm

Cabal Theatre Company presents

The Comedy Improvised Halloween Murder Mystery

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

Starring Dominic MacHale (The Young Offenders), Laura Harte (The Improv Panto), Annette Roche and Adrian Scanlan (Snatch Comedy Improv) and Cornelius O'Sullivan (Cork Comedy Fest / CoCo Club).

This time in a ‘Cluedo-style’ show, Miss Scarlett, Colonel Mustard, Reverend Green, Mrs. Peacock and Professor Plum 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 secretly 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.

Tickets: €15, €12 concessions, Groups (8 or more): €10

Note: Concession and Group Rate bookings can only be made by calling the box office on 021 450 5624

This play is a very funny insight into the life of the teacher and an insider view of how schools really work.

Helen Hallissey clearly has her finger on the pulse of education in Ireland and this play depicts a year in the life of a school. Absolutely hilarious!
