“You’ll really want your ticket to ride!”
-The Reviews Hub


Mesdames and Messieurs, may I take your tickets please? 

Pinch Punch welcome you aboard their hilarious and exciting show, Locomotive for Murder: The Improvised Whodunnit: a fully improvised murder mystery where the audience must help solve the case. There will be outrageous accents. There will be larger-than-life characters. There will be thrills, spills, and good old-fashioned kills.

Through audience suggestions and stories, Pinch Punch create a cast of four suspects boarding a train, though not everyone will survive the journey. Thankfully, onboard is a world-famous detective, ready to jump to action and solve the case. Who is the murderer? Only one person in the cast knows: the murderer themselves! Can the detective solve the case before the killer strikes again? That depends entirely on the audience. 

If you’re a fan of comedy or murder mysteries and want the chance to be in charge of the action, then this is the show for you.

Run time: 60 minutes (90 minute version with interval available)
Age recommendation: 8+.
