Peterborough native Jacqueline Twomey is performing a one act comedy at this year’s Toronto Fringe Festival called The Real Housewives of Murder.
Jacqueline and her friend Devon Henderson—who usually perform as a sketch duo, TwoSon—wrote every word of this play together from the couch in their apartment they share as roommates in Toronto.

The concept of The Real Housewives of Murder they wrote and perform is this: Murder is like, super inconvenient when you’re trying to throw a party. Two very Real Housewives kind of, sort of, probably for sure kill a staff member as they’re setting up for a tiki gala. What follows is a mashup of the E! Network and Hitchcock, as Rina and Harper—played by Jacqueline and Devon—try to figure out what to do with the body, and each other, before the guests arrive.

A lifelong comedy junkie, Jacqueline is currently in the Conservatory and Longform Conservatory program at the Second City Training Centre. She met Devon in the Comedy Writing program there.
