The best night out I've had in ten years!

Just a quick note to let you know that our recent fundraising murder mystery evening, featuring "Who Killed the Director?" was a huge success - raising over £1000 for Croydon Youth Theatre.
Kathryn Vincent (Croydon Youth Theatre Organisation)
Our theatre in Hinckley, Leicestershire have just staged one of your murder mystery plays ‘Who Killed the Hotel Manager?’. We took £1,000 in ticket and bar sales, It was a
great success and every one loved it!
I was concerned as to whether reading from the script would detract from the production… not a bit of it… a resounding success!
Cherie Hamlet-Smith (WI- Ashford, Kent)
The feedback has been tremendous. When asked if they wanted us to stage another murder mystery, the answer was a resounding…’yes’!!
Mike Crowe- Shanklin Theatre (Who Killed the Hotel Manager?)
The very best Whodunnit script I’ve ever read!
