Audience members will create the victim and solve the crime in a hilarious murder mystery at Leicester Comedy Festival.

When CSI: Crime Scene Improvisation take to the stage, no one knows who the killer is; not even the cast! The audience provides the victim’s name, their profession and how they were killed. From there the cast improvise a comedy play set during the aftermath and investigation.

With the help of the detective, the audience gets to grill the suspects in a police line-up before identifying the murderer.

“The play becomes a surreal crime comedy,” Rachel E. Thorn, of  The Chandeliers theatre company explains. “Every show is unique. We can’t wait to see what the Leicester audiences come up with!”

Crime Scene Improvisation is at Peter Pizzeria on 23rd and 24th February.
