Criminally Untrue

“Full of infectious energy… It’s ridiculous, and it’s ridiculously funny.” (Edfringereview)

Criminally Untrue is a completely improvised true crime documentary, based entirely on your suggestions.

Help these improvisers create the next Tiger King, Fyre Festival or Wild Wild Country… 5 performers make an entirely new documentary, complete with expert interviews, reconstructed evidence footage and courtroom drama, all whilst our improvising technicians provide the stirring soundtrack to help us along.

From alumni of Edinburgh Fringe’s longest running improv troupe, The Improverts and the sell-out, cult-hit The Wonder Jam.
