NPR, WhereLA Magazine, LAist.com, Time Out New York & The New York Times all say Keep Calm and Go See Murder Abbey!
Set in a grand Downton Abbey-like estate in the roaring twenties, in Murder Abbey comedienne Kate Hess gleefully deconstructs her favorite costume drama conventions all while solving an Agatha Christie style murder mystery. Fans of Masterpiece Theatre will delight in her fresh satirical take on familiar archetypes; from a suspiciously robotic Laura Linney to a love-sick maid whose courtship cannot escape the intrusive melodramatic music. Murder Abbey has sold out shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and Los Angeles and at The Annex in Seattle.
Directed by three time Emmy nominated comedian Andrew Secunda currently writing for The Goldbergs on ABC.
