Watch a first look at the new production of hit musical Kathy and Stella Solve a Murder!

The sell-out smash-hit of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2022 returned this year with a new expanded version.

Originally running at the Fringe in August, the show toured to Bristol Old Vic in September and is now running at HOME Manchester to 21 October.

Those on the cast are Bronté Barbé (Newsies, Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre) as Kathy, Rebekah Hinds (Oklahoma! Young Vic/ West End) as Stella, Jodie Jacobs (Rock of Ages, West End) as Felicia, TJ Lloyd (Guys and Dolls, Sheffield Crucible) as Justin and Imelda Warren-Green (Doctor Who: Time Fracture, Immersive LDN) as Erica.

They’re joined by new cast members Chelsea Hall, Jacob Kohli and Sarah Pearson.

“This is impossible! We’ve got no motives. No suspects. We don’t know anything! Who knew solving a murder would be so hard?”

BFFs Kathy and Stella host Hull’s least successful true crime podcast. When their favourite author is killed, they are thrust into a thrilling whodunnit of their own! Can they crack the case (and become global podcast superstars) before the killer strikes again…?

The musical has a book and lyrics by Jon Brittain and music and lyrics from Matthew Floyd Jones. Songs from the show were recently released online to stream.
