Excerpts From Another Review of 12A

“Presented as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, James Hazelden’s morbid 12A is a vignette of stories all taking place inside a suburban home that has the misfortune of being apartment number 12A.


The first of the three revolves around two friends (Brose Avard and Vaughn Rae) discussing the previous nights events as a woman sleeps awkwardly on a chair. The second story involves a young man (Nicholas Roy) who goes to collect his lost wallet from a stranger’s home (brilliantly played by Chris Tomkins). Tomkins’ portrayal builds the uncertainty of what is happening and while he appears to be a peculiar person, we are kept guessing right up until the end as to how this will unfold. While the ending is also unexpected, this time Hazelden drops clues throughout and brings them nicely together for the big reveal. Hazelden leaves his best for last with a hitwoman (Emily Carr) on a mission to assassinate a young woman (Fleur Saxton) in her home. Both actors are highly convincing in their roles of two people trying to reach the most advantageous outcome to their dire situation. They do a great job in finding the comedy of their characters while still remaining the cold-hearted assassin or the petrified victim.


Half the fun of a show like 12A is trying to determine who is telling the truth and how everything will play out. By taking everyday situations such as an unfortunate sexual experience, a missing wallet and a relationship break up, Hazelden presents three tales that take the audience to some dark and twisted places, and what could be more entertaining than that? ”

A Nice Review of 12A

“Enter at your own risk!


A new show by the Mystery Radio Theatre crew, this show will leave you cringing with spooky delight as mysterious revisitations of three intertwining tales combine to create this intriguing theatre production titled 12A.


Written, produced and directed by James Hazelden as part of this year’s Melbourne International Comedy festival, it’s currently being performed at La Mama.


This is a black comedy with witty and well-crafted language that seamlessly connects the series of mysteries into a twist of dangerous encounters separated only by time and year.


Murder is always an operative option in apartment 12A. The first tale begins with the girlfriend slumped in a chair, who is questionably asleep or maybe dead. Her boyfriend and his sidekick friend discuss the relationship as he reveals his menacing thoughts of being a serial killer.


These Pinteresque characters exude ominous feelings of danger and betrayal as they are thrown into grave circumstances.


The same apartment, harboring a history of spine thrilling secrets haunted by the number thirteen; the real estate con artist exclaims who manipulates his victim with the tales of the Black Mist superhero, as he slowly unravels his sinister intentions in a deadly festering and comical manner.


Impressive cutting-edge material worthy of a good night out at the theatre! Check it out or die!”

Viewer Reviews: Mystery Radio Theatre Series 2

Here are some (mostly) rave reviews of Mystery Radio Theatre from punters on the On The House website:
goobs ★★★★★
Very funny
Jenny4stars ★★★★★
Fun show and great venue! I just wish that there were more of the ‘sound effects’ created live on-stage.
Jess82 ★★★★
Demon ★★★★
Very entertaining performance of ‘The Killer Wore Death’. Amusing and engaging cast that seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were. Fantastic, quirky venue enhances the experience. Worth taking in.
meditatingcat ★★★★★
Brilliant! 5 star performance.
rubberman ★★★
I saw “Maxie Diablo & The Funky Funky Sex Murders”. The actress playing Maxie Diablo is a talent, and Sexy Pete had a good turn. It’s just not quite clever enough yet to be very amusing for more discerning viewers. Solid enough diverting entertainment.
