Kit Goodman! A Good Man

9–13 April 2019
Presented by Mudcrabs

Guild Theatre

Level 1, Union House
University of Melbourne Victoria


Nicholas Kirkby

If you've ever felt personally victimised by PTV, this is the show for you. 

There's a killer on the loose, terrorising the streets of Melbourne by travelling on public transport without a valid ticket. Only a dynamic collaboration between Kit Goodman, the most chiselled detective at Victoria Police, and the most ruthless of PTV's authorised officers, Ronda Redgate, can save the city and get the trams back on track. With his masculinity on the line (the Upfield line), Mr Goodman is not happy about this new partnership. This case will take the help of all the personnel their departments can offer, from tram stop spies to the elf queen who lives in the basement of Brunswick police station. Join Kit Goodman on this mission to find out what shenanigans ensue. 

Written and directed by Emily White

Produced by Nicholas Kirkby

Proudly presented by MUDCRABS - Melbourne University Comedy Revue Board, the most prolific comedy group on campus, as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2019.

"Whip smart and genuinely funny, [Kit Goodman] skewers the male detective genre and more besides."
