Murder Me Too – Interactive Murder Mystery

To celebrate the Festival’s Silver Jubilee, Murder Me Too by Susan Edwards is a reworking of the first ever Festival Murder Mystery written in 2002, updated and revised for 2019 with never-before-seen material.

It is May 6th, 1913. War is in the offing, women campaign for the vote and Dr Bernard Gladstone, Freudian psychoanalyst, finds his authority challenged at home and professionally. When the church burns down after a suffragettes meeting, the household is thrown into turmoil…Watch events leading up to a murder in this intimate site-specific interactive promenade performance then, guided by the detective, interrogate the suspects over a glass of wine to apprehend the perpetrator. No previous experience needed!

The performance involves a short walk and standing throughout so may not be suitable for people with limited mobility.
