The Murderer - Daily Info's review

The award-winning production The Murderer reaches Pegasus Theatre this week as part of its UK wide tour of their Edinburgh Fringe hit. Clown Funeral have adapted Luke Kennard's poem about a society where criminals are rehabilitated; the Carer and the Murderer meet for coffee and play badminton. The piece explores forgiveness and obsession through the medium of surreal humour, physical theatre and dark drama.
