Set in a 1880s St Kilda mansion the exclusive ‘Melbourne Club’ and the criminal haunts of Little Bourke Street, this is the enthralling story of murder in a hansom cab.

Featuring the acclaimed  James  Wright, Simon Russell (Will Rock You) Lucy Gransbury (Godspell), and renowned director Don MacKay The Mystery of a Hansom Cab will delight you with its unexpected plot twists and colourful references to late nineteenth century Victoria.
