Murder Abbey

Written & Performed by Kate Hess
Directed by Andrew Secunda

Wednesday, June 12th
Curtain at 8 pm
Tickets: $10

After playing sold out shows at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and Los Angeles costume drama parody Murder Abbey makes its Seattle debut at Annex Theatre! 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. Named one of the top spoofs of Downton Abbey by The Daily Beast and called “A cri de coeur on par with Donna Martin graduates!” by June Thomas of Slate. WhereLA Magazine, LAist.com and Time Out New York all say Keep Calm and Go See Murder Abbey!
