Murder Mystery 2013 - Inspector Milnes' most difficult case

« Back to previous shows

Set in World War 2 in East Markham and written by Jo Crutchley the show was very well received across the two nights and was sold out. Many of the audience arrived in period dress - some more suspect than others!

When Mavis Bates is murdered with the Doctors gun in the Village Hall shortly before a big event the village is thrown into turmoil. Inspector Milne is summoned from Scotland Yard and has to pull together the murder, the black market beef & scotch, the spy at the camp, the secret code, the secret adoptions and the dodgy farm deal to try and work out which of the multiple suspects pulled the trigger.

There were twists and turns (and supper) before the final denouement, as well as opportunity for the audience to crack the code and question the cast.
