A murder, at the Detective Union of Ireland’s AGM? Never!
Sense of the dramatic aside, Devious Theatre’s 20-part comedy detective series, The Vultures Murder Mystery Hour (and a bit), is available to stream via Spotify, iTunes and the rest.
With the Irish arts sector effectively under lockdown with no end in site, we’ve made the 2014/15 work available to the masses.
It was a super project to be involved in, one I engineered and recorded in Carlow over a number of days in 2014 before heading into a long stretch of post production with director John Morton.
The show was originally broadcast by KCLR, five episodes a week for four weeks, and turned out the second work produced in association with the station. A re-imagining of The War Of The Worlds with a distinct Carlow-Kilkenny feel was a PPI bronze award winner back in 2008.
Vultures is hosted via transistor.fm (if you’re looking for a solid podcast host, look no further).
Vultures is a 20 part murder mystery radio serial focusing on the private detectives of Vulture Private Investigations, a small time detective agency in south east Ireland. Janine Drew, Dan McGrain, Jim Vultour and Niall Tennyson are the detectives in question and the story follows them as they get caught up in a suspenseful murder mystery at the Detective Union Of Ireland AGM.
The show follows the varying perspectives of the four bungling sleuths as they trawl the corridors of Wisteria Lodge, searching for a killer, quizzing a colourful cast of suspects and trying to figure out who killed Ireland’s most famous detective Basil Maguire? And why?
