The show is a riot' (Scottish Daily Mail).

In the two days since we saw this show, my partner and I have been quoting some of the ridiculous improvised lines from this show at one another. That's how we know we loved this show, and will continue to remember it for months from now.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Excellent show! So well done! Each actor has a unique charisma and instantly develops a fantastic character. With just a few audience suggestions, they are off in no time. Very funny group, visually appealing set, great
sound effects, lights and even IMPROMPTU SONGS!!!

Tip- get in the que early to choose your seat. This show fills up and larger groups arriving late my have to split up.

Enjoyed it so much that we went to see the other shows that some of these actors appeared in.

Would definitely watch again. Already On our list for next year!

We saw the night show which is a little different with gender reversal story.
Great fun, performers have great chemistry together and it was a joy to watch.
worth a watch if Improv is a thing you love.

Ben Macpherson 107 days ago

Murder She Didn’t write are too flightninprov show able to hold their own amongst the countries very best improvisers. With a quick chaotic mind the team showcase enviable talent creating their 1920s ish setting with delightful anachronisms. Their wits, physical comedy skills and narrative humour cement them as improvisers of the highest order.

Hilarious show with a very talented cast!! Great improvisers! Five stars would highly recommend! Saw the show twice!!

Sam I 107 days ago

Having seen the daytime show in the past, I went along to the late night drag version of the show and it was an absolute hoot - some of the most fun improv I've seen in ages. You can really tell the performers are having a blast on stage and enjoy playing with each other. Would highly recommend it to any fans of improv!

A fantastic cast performing what has become a real fringe favourite. Skilfully improvised and a total crowd pleaser. The packed house was in stitches!!

I can’t understand the 5 star reviews. Improv is a craft and if we compare this to showstoppers who have been perfecting this over 10 years then you cannot give this even a two star.

A great improv show

I was looking for something that a three generation group (teenagers up to retirement age) could enjoy together, and this didn't disappoint - we all laughed a lot! Great fun!

Jules 113 days ago

This was a fun show filled with twists and turns. A good mix of Panto, Cluedo and Agatha Christie novels, with a splash of Angela Lansbury. I would definitely see them again.

Nick Mellish 113 days ago

A fun and clever hour of improvised comedy. The performances are solid, the jokes come thick and fast, and having seen the show more than once across different years, the level of genuine improvisation is impressive: this is the real deal.

She didn't write it, but it deserves to be a bestseller all the same.
