Like a Murders off a Duck's Back

An afternoon of absurd murder mystery

The most shocking and hilarious absurdist thriller ever penned for the stage! In the seediest of dive bars, for strangers are just trying to enjoy a damn drink when tragedy strikes! Our band of violent vagabonds are thrust into a magnificent mystery that threatens everything they hold close. Who will live? Who will die? Who gets to decide?

A barman, a spinster, a neurotic and a sleazebag walk into a bar, but the punch line doesn’t end there, follow our four idiom idiots along their absurd travels to a bloody wedding. This film noir style murder-not-so-mystery is packed to the brim with all the ridiculous clichés and slapstick error comedy, a dash of romance, a squeeze of suspenseful climax (of both kinds) and a garnish of exaggerated obscenity.

Any session can be Auslan interpreted. Please email [email protected] in advance to confirm an interpreter.
