Students to perform at Edinburgh Festival Fringe

Vatican murder mystery comedy Cardinal Sin, which has been produced by five Leicester students, will be finding its way to the stage at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe between 17 and 23 August.

Cardinal Sin blends Catholicism, bees and the Wu-Tang clan into an hour-long comedy romp through the Sistine Chapel – where a murder has taken place in the Papal Conclave and it’s up to those already there to solve it.

Delving into the dark world of papal intrigue and mystery, the show opens with the announcement of the Pope's death, and a new Pope must be elected. Cardinal Lovely is the most popular candidate - however, when he is announced as Pope, his dead body is discovered.  

Quickly realising that the murderer must be among them because nobody can leave or enter the conclave until a new Pope is announced, characters Kris and Marlene lead the investigation in trying to solve Lovely's murder.

Cardinal Sin will be at Sweet Grassmarket (Venue 18) International 1, from 17 – 23 August at 3:15pm until 4:05pm and tickets are free.
