Directed by Luke Sheppard (In the Heights), Murder for Two will return to The Other Palace for a five week limited season following a UK tour which will open at the Cardiff New Theatre on Monday 22 October.

When famous novelist Arthur Whitney is found dead at his birthday party, it’s time to call in the detectives. The only problem is, they’re out of town. Enter Officer Marcus Moscowicz, a neighbourhood cop who dreams of climbing the ranks. With the clock ticking, it’s up to Marcus to prove his super sleuthing skills and solve the crime before the real detective arrives…

The musical whodunit features a book and music by Joe Kinosian with a book and lyrics by Kellen Blair. It was recently a huge hit Off-Broadway, playing at Second Stage Theatre in 2013 before transferring to New World Stages, where the run was extended several times.

Paying tribute to murder mystery plays, this two handed musical will see Ed MacArthur and Jeremy Legat will both reprise their performances as Officer Marcus Moscowicz and The Suspects respectively.

Ed MacArthur’s recent credits include The Borrowers (Watermill Theatre) and Arcadia (UK Tour). Jeremy Legat was recently seen in Crazy For You (Watermill Theatre) with other credits including Grey Gardens (Southwark Playhouse) and Wicked (Apollo Victoria Theatre).

Meanwhile, the creative team for the production includes musical direction and sound design by Tom Attwood (Peter and the Starcatcher, Theatre Royal Northampton) and design by Gabriella Slade (The Importance Of Being Earnest, Vaudeville Theatre).
