Tell us about M: The Berlin Murders.

Based on the classic 1931 German thriller, this new adaptation explores a city gripped with terror. When Berlin’s children start disappearing, both the police and the criminal underworld decide to hunt down the monster responsible.

M: The Berlin Murders is an atmospheric, outdoor performance behind The Bus Stop Theatre Co-op  (weather permitting).

Describe your show in three words.

Stark. Eerie. Breathless

Why should someone come to see your show?

Although M is fraught with violence and paranoia, ultimately it chooses to focus on the city’s people and their longing to make the world safer for their children – a vital message for everybody.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Daredevil. A vigilante underdog working out of the shadows to restore a violent slum.

If you could see only one show at the Halifax Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

Counting to a Hundred. You never know what Michael Lake is going to do, but it’s always unique.
