Mystery Radio Theatre is a unique live experience – a brand new comedy/murder mystery performed every month, in the style of old-timey radio plays. Actors in elegant evening dress create a theatre for your mind, complete with live sound effects and ad reads. There will be silly voices. There will be a special musical guest. And there will be plenty of gruesome fun and mystery.

Returning for a third season after sellout success at La Mama Theatre and The Butterfly Club, these brand new mysteries include a satire of courtroom dramas, a ghost story about possessed pets, a Christmas-in-July murder mystery, an outback Wolf Creek homage set in a convent and an ‘answers in the back of the book’ boy detective mystery.

Every episode is a lovingly funny homage to a different genre of murder mystery, with actors huddling around a central microphone, ready to transport you back to the time of live, skin-of-your-teeth radio theatre.

From the makers of Denouement!Incognito!SubhumansMan Bites God and Theatre of the World. Close your eyes and enjoy these comedy thrillers, or keep them open and watch a talented group of performers create an audio movie before your very eyes.

A new show every month. Five shows only. Don’t miss out.

…a surreal journey that only builds in ludicrousness. The script is witty and fresh, keeping the audience guessing and trying to understand the absurdities that take place – only to be surprised.”
– Lucinda Naughton – Theatre Travels
