The Real Housewives of Murder – 2015 Toronto Fringe Press Release

“Murder is like, super inconvenient when you’re trying to throw a party”


Excerpt from press release:


Murder is like, super inconvenient when you’re trying to throw a party. Two very Real Housewives kind of, sort of, probably for sure kill a staff member as they’re setting up for a tiki gala. What follows is a mashup of the E! Network and Hitchcock, as Rina and Harper try to figure out what to do with the body, and each other, before the guests arrive.

Devon Henderson and Jacqueline Twomey usually perform as a sketch duo, TwoSon. For reasons unknown, they decided to try their hand at playwriting, and wrote every word of this play together from the couch in their apartment. Devon and Jacqueline are roommates, writing partners, and actual real life friends.

As lifelong comedy junkies, Devon and Jacqueline are both currently in the Conservatory and Longform Conservatory programs at the Second City Training Centre, where they met in the Comedy Writing program. Both of them also have improv troupes. Basically, they do all the same things except Devon is good at music and Jacqueline is good at sports.

Now they’re going to play two housewives trying to get away with murder and see what happens.
