Kill the Beast’s anarchic new comedy series Who Exploded Vivien Stone? wraps a murder mystery in a warped cinematic nightmare. Set on a troubled film set where – in the wake of a tragedy – the genre, cast and central vision are all up for grabs, the creative team must survive a killer on the loose who intends to make a few more brutal cuts. Who Exploded Vivien Stone? is a fast-paced, relentless adventure of shock headlines, shoot deadlines and film studio mayhem.

Time Out

‘From Kill the Beast theatre company, this comedy-horror drama is packed with excellent comic actors and a daft concept explored to its nth degree. Vivien Stone is – was – a Hollywood actor who was once, says the blurb, “all over the silver screen. Now she’s all over the wall.” Set on a film set in 1973, with requisite time-warp cast, is the murderer still on the loose? (Yes.) Packed with awful puns, the show’s high jokes-per-minute ratio batters you into laughter. All eight episodes have been released at once, so this one’s ripe for bingeing.’
