Pinch Punch welcome you aboard Locomotive for Murder: The Improvised Whodunnit, a totally improvised, totally outrageous murder mystery where killing the cast and cracking the case is in your hands. Expect dubious accents and shaky alibis, along with thrills, spills, and good old-fashioned kills.
Four characters board a train, but not everyone will survive… Thankfully, a world-famous detective is onboard, ready to dive in and solve the case (with the help of their trusty audience assistants, of course). But who is the murderer? Through a random ticketing mix-up, only one person knows—the murderer themselves. Can you help the detective solve the case before the killer strikes again?
Using audience stories and suggestions, watch Pinch Punch create a unique, one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-repeated whodunnit. If you love comedy, murder mysteries and putting your wits to the test, then this is the show for you!
Pinch Punch is a comedy collective of long-form improvisers. Based in London, their work includes The Pinch Punch Podcast and The improvised Panto, a festive favourite since their sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2018. In 2020, Pinch Punch were commissioned by Harrow Arts Centre to create online, interactive kids show, Build Your Own Story, and received further backing for a run of Locomotive for Murder: The Improvised Whodunnit. Since then, Pinch Punch have performed their improvised murder mystery at the Brighton Open Air Theatre as well in black boxes, forests and palaces.
