BATS Improv, the Bay Area’s favorite improvisational theatre company, brings back one of its most popular improvised formats, the murder mystery, in which the audience is asked to shout out details—relationships, unconventional weapons, locations, and more—that result in a one-night-only performance of a completely original work.

You are cordially invited to solve the murder at the English Manor. Follow along as the detective uncovers the secrets, clues, and motives of suspicious guests. And no one—not even the actors—knows whodunit or why until the end of this funny, thrilling, and completely improvised tale of murder.
