Slasher film meets Scooby-Doo in Surrey comedy

Comedy duo pays homage to horror/mystery classics in two-hour show.

Peter n’ Chris perform The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel for three evenings in Surrey.

It’s billed as being a mix of Scooby-Doo and a less-scary teen slasher film.

But have no fear, a pair of astute detectives are on the case. Well, sort of.

Peter n’ Chris: The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel comes to the Surrey Arts Centre next week, bringing its comedic send-up of the horror and mystery genres with it and poking fun at movie and TV classics like Psycho and The Hardy Boys.

The show features Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson, an award-winning comedy due from Vancouver. When the pair are stranded on a spooky highway, their only option is to take shelter at the Hungry Heart Hotel.

They are greeted by a murderous hotel manager, but are too preoccupied with the fact they have to share a single bed to notice the murders taking place around them.

Peter n’ Chris: The Mystery of the Hungry Heart Motel runs March 17-19 in the Studio Theatre at Surrey Arts Centre (13750 88 Ave.). The two-hour show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25-$35, available at 604-501-5566 or at tickets.surrey.ca
