Kathy And Stella Solve A Murder! (Francesca Moody Productions)

By | Published on Wednesday 10 August 2022

For an enlivening show to round off a day, this musical production will be hard to beat for energy, warmth and silliness. Smiley Kathy and deadpan Stella have been friends forever; they memorably sing “If I didn’t have you I would die”. Now something different for their podcast: they are on a new mission as amateur sleuths – their fave true-crime writer Felicia Taylor has been murdered in their home-town Hull. With three others in the cast, each playing a range of different characters, there’s a lot happening in the round, and at a fast pace. Everyone absolutely goes for their song and dance routines like there’s no tomorrow, and it’s uproarious fun. I defy anyone to work out whodunnit, though.

ROUNDABOUT @ Summerhall, until 28 Aug.
