Murders on Paper Street

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.

Paper Street Theatre has been featured at festivals around the world, including Vancouver, London, Romania, Amsterdam, and more. They have won multiple Eventawards 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.
