What is Corpse! about?
This unpredictable and crazy ride of a play will have you holding your breath in anticipation one second and busting a gut from laughing the next. Set in London in 1936, Corpse! tells the story of twin brothers and the unexpected twist? One brother plots to kill the other and in the most unusual circumstances. Evelyn is an out of work actor and increasingly poor and on the other hand is his suave and well-off brother. Of course, the only solution is for him to kill his twin and inherit his wealth. Evelyn engages the shady Powell and in the depths of Evelyn’s flat they plot away; that is when they’re not being interrupted by the theatrical landlady! With a foolproof plan in tow, naturally, things don’t go as they should in this vastly entertaining whodunnit!
