Reviews

Here at Can You Catch the Killer we have had the pleasure and honour to perform for a wide and diverse audience. From performing to royalty at the stately Dumfries House to performing to an audience of excited young festival goers in a pop-up theatre tent at the Youth Beatz festival: we really can adapt to any audience or situation.

Here are a few reviews from our detectives!
