Age Recommendation:

A crime has been committed in fairytale land. The frog is dead and now the princess is a widow. The details are vague and the murderer is obviously a mastermind. It will take Fairy Tale Land’s top detectives to solve the case. With impossible clues leading to confused witnesses and a high-speed car chase, these two deadbeat cops, with their offbeat jokes, will have you laughing your way to the truth.

This is Cairns and Cockrell’s second show after their debut show, “The Plothole” received critical acclaim: “The Plothole: It’s dry, but you can laugh” – Steve Kretzman; “Hilarious and Innovative” – Deep Fried Man; “An hour of hearty laughter that will keep you and your tannie laughing out loud” –

They have been to numerous Arts Festivals and have toured the country with their creatively written style of shows, a style of writing that has been compared to a mixture of Dylan Moran’s ‘Black Books’ and Charlie Kaufman’s ‘Being John Malkovich’.
