Event Description

Last year's sell-out success returns to the Old Police Cells as Brighton murderers tell their true stories in the building where one of them tried to flush away the evidence that would condemn him, and another's body was put on display for the morbid delectation of 23,000 members of the public.

 "This is a darkly enthralling immersive, immensely enjoyable theatre event." (Broadway Baby).

 "What makes this succeed on all levels is the in-depth character studies that bring the Brighton Killers to life." (remotegoat).

 "Well-written, atmospheric and blackly comic"
