"Magnus Steele is an improvised, interactive crime–thriller created by ‘Golden Boy of Wellington Improv’, Austin Harrison. Infamous private eye Magnus Steele investigates the crime of the century through interrogations, jazz, and beat poetry, but here’s the catch: all the victims, suspects, and witnesses are played by YOU! Come prepared for hilarity, bad accents, and to be a part of the show!
Magnus Steele has been delighting audiences for the last 18 months, debuting as a 10-minute character piece at NZ Fringe 2019 and going on to win and headline the monthly improv contest Late Night Knife Fight. After a sell-out opening season at NZ Fringe 2020 (nominated- Most Promising Emerging Artist), the final, 50-minute version is heading north for Whangarei Fringe! With TWO NIGHTS ONLY, this is a unique comedy event you don't want to miss!
'The show is reminiscent of Brooklyn Nine Nine, if they let me join in from my sofa. In other words it’s witty, unpredictable and wonderfully endearing and the jokes are pretty cool. Cool, cool, cool.' - Sara Hirsch, Art Murmurs
'Appropriately hatted' - Margaret Austin, Theatreview
'A Masterclass in crowd work'- Sara Hirsch, Art Murmurs"
