Murder on the Dancefloor

Spies Like Us

31st Jul 2019 - 26th Aug 2019

Beside - Pleasance Courtyard


Suitable for ages 12 and above


Sabrina digs up dirt, a hysterical boy looks heavenward and there might be a ghost in the garden. In a city that feels less and less like home, five friends are plunged into a ruthless world of greed, grudges and grooves. Lurching from dodgy pubs to dysfunctional dinners they must figure out who they can trust and how far they’ll go to get what they want.

Following a national and international tour, the multi award-winning Spies Like Us return in their explosive physical style with a jet-black comedy for our time. Don’t try this at home.
