“I have a murderer in my house. It’s all perfectly fine.”

In a world where citizens rehabilitate criminals, the Carer and the Murderer go for coffee and play badminton. Clown Funeral’s adaptation of Luke Kennard’s darkly comic poem tells the story of their unusual relationship, questions how easily we can forgive someone and asks to what extent our obsessions can consume us.

Using an electrifying style that blends surreal humour, physical theatre and original music, Clown Funeral vividly bring the bizarre world of the poem to life. With a rolling cast portraying the characters of the Carer, the Murderer and Everyone Else, this unconventional three-hander poses difficult questions about morality, preconceptions and care in a uniquely offbeat voice.

“Unusual, poetic take on crime rehabilitation hits the spot” — The Stage

“Sometimes a bit of quiet, wry reflection can be pretty great. I reckon that’s what we get here, and I liked it very much” — Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods

“The Murderer is a cleverly conceived show, with an impressive execution that marks Clown Funeral out as a company to watch in the future” — The Reviews Hub
