Weaving Wodehousian witticisms, farce and highly quotable one-liners into a pair of intriguing 1930s whodunits, award-winning writer-performer Tom Taylor’s rakish aristocrat and first-time detective, Charlie Montague, must prevent a murder. The chap dies. 

Not put off in the slightest, Charlie attends the opening of a new art exhibition where he is presented with a double-threat: murder and modern art. He is equally baffled by both.

Packed with nonstop laughs from start to finish, The Game’s a Foot, Try the Fish was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Festival where it performed a three-week sell-out run, collected a host of four- and five-star reviews and marked Taylor out as one of the country’s most exciting new comedians and writers.

Both shows will be performed back to back, this is certainly one not to miss!

“Tom Taylor has produced a show so funny at one point I thought my lungs were going to burst ... a masterpiece in the genre, fans of the Noel Cowards of the world will not want to miss this show”
Broadway Baby

“Armed only with a chaise longue, smoking jacket and tons of charm … this is a gloriously silly and subversive murder mystery that delights its audience”
The Stage

“If you like your Agatha Christie, or particularly your Dorothy L Sayers, you’ll enjoy the substance beneath the humour and the frequent nods to detective fiction tropes. I absolutely loved every moment of it … an astoundingly funny show.”
Fringe Guru

”A pure, laugh-filled delight”
