A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is a darkly comedic musical that tells the story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune, who discovers that he’s ninth in line to inherit the D’Ysquith family estate.


Deciding to eliminate the eight relatives standing in his way, Monty embarks on a series of humorous and inventive murders, all while juggling romantic entanglements with two women.

As Monty navigates his way through the upper echelons of Edwardian society, he must keep one step ahead of suspicion and the law.

The musical is celebrated for its witty lyrics, engaging story, and the unique challenge of one actor playing all of the D’Ysquith heirs, leading to a tour de force performance full of quick changes and versatile acting.
