A killer comedy and classic improvised murder mystery set in the 1930s. Filled with improbable twists, and oh yes, a corpse.

Murder on the Improv Express

Picture this – a luxury train trapped in the Canadian Rockies with a passenger list that includes a prominent socialite, a retired military officer and a famous detective, and oh yes, there’s a corpse. What you have are the makings of a classic murder mystery. Welcome to Murder on the Improv Express – A Killer Comedy.

As in countless whodunnits, this one is set in the 1930’s and involves many of the set characters and scenarios you’d expect to find. However, what isn’t known is who is the victim, who is the killer and how the dastardly deed was done. These are just some of the things that will be established by audience suggestions during the course of the show. What is known is that audience members will die laughing at all the improbable plot twists and turns.

Want to know more? You’ll have to come and see it. There’re aren’t any spoilers to tell as no two shows can ever be the same.

Murder on the Improv Express’ comedy slays, and the costumes, set, and soundtrack are killer, too.
