Murders on Paper Street Returns To Craigdarroch Castle
After, a successful run in 2019, the Paper Street Theatre Co. is bringing Murders on Paper Street back to Craigdarroch Castle for a six-night engagement.
When a body turns up at Craigdarroch Castle it's up to a vintage cast of colourful cliché characters to discover who did it, how it was done, and who's next. Inspired by one of the best selling authors of all time, Agatha Christie, this fully improvised mystery will have you on the edge of your tweed-covered seat until the final reveal.
“We look forward to welcoming The Paper Street Theatre Co., with their unique brand of improvised theatre back to the Castle,” said John Hughes, Executive Director of Craigdarroch Castle. “Our theater productions are perennial favourites and we anticipate a sell-out for this distinctive murder mystery.”
Paper Street Theatre has been featured at festivals around the world, including Vancouver, London, Romania, Amsterdam, and more. They have won multiple awards for their innovative style of improvisation. Under the direction of improviser and storyteller Dave Morris, The Paper Street Theatre co. creates improvisation that feels like theatre. By studying great playwrights, and theatrical styles then performing them with no script, their ensemble sets out to change what people often perceive improvisation to be. Some of what they do may be comedy, but first it will be theatre.
Murders on Paper Street takes place throughout Craigdarroch Castle requiring audience members to travel the Castle’s 87 stairs over the course of the 1 hour production. The show runs March 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 and 28 at 6:00 pm.
Tickets are $30 for the general public, $25 for members of the Castle Society. Tickets are available at https://thecastle.ca/pages/events , by calling 250-592-5323 or visiting the Castle at 1050 Joan Crescent.
