Quintessential Review

“This is impossible! We’ve got motives. No Suspects. We don’t know anything! Who knew solving a murder would be so hard?”

Murder obsessed BFFs Kathy and Stella host Hull’s least successful true-crime podcast. When their favourite author is killed, they are thrust into a thrilling whodunnit of their own! Can they crack the case (and become global podcast superstars) before the killer strikes again…?

This laugh-out-loud musical reunites the writing and musical talents of Jon Brittain and Matthew Floyd Jones (Frisky and Mannish) who last collaborated on the critically acclaimed, Fringe First award-winning A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).
