About the show

Who killed Miranda Wright? Through a lush, cross-genre score, six instrumentalists take you through the last day of Miranda’s life, singing, acting and playing all the parts. The mystery unfolds through the taping of a live court TV show. You, the Jury, will have a hand in convicting the killer... just be prepared for the consequences.
