An original, immersive black comedy, Mack Ribbe is Going to Die blends gallows humour with the slapstick and the stereotypical to re-imagine the classic murder mystery.
Mack Ribbe is a detective who doesn't play by the rules. When he stumbles upon something suspicious, a conspiracy begins to unravel that'll take him to places he never expected. There's only one problem: Mack Ribbe is going to die. But can you see it coming before he does? The audience knows all – if they’re only clever enough to see it.
The show is created by Only Lucky Dogs, a theatre company formed in 2017 by Sheffield students keen to test their new writing on stage at Edinburgh, and is directed by Michael Saliba.
