Murder Mystery Weekends

Don your deerstalker for a fun-filled weekend of murder!

A Murder Mystery Weekend in a great way to turn a short break into a adventure-filled, exciting and social weekend. The fun begins at dinner on the Friday when you watch the drama unfold in the restaurant. The next day you get the chance to interrogate the suspects and look through the supporting documentation. You can even chat with your fellow detectives (who are usually happy to discuss the case). Eventually the killer is unmasked, the winner rewarded and you get to see where you went wrong!

Something Evil

Every summer, the open-air Shakespearean performance held at Twinstock Manor is an eagerly awaited local event. The production is directed by Florian Benedict, son of the manor’s owner, Lady Lavinia Benedict. In the past, Florian has played safe with Shakespeare’s popular comedies but, this year, has decided to be more adventurous and has chosen ‘The Scottish play’. It is a long-held superstition in the theatre that to name the play before the performance is to court bad luck, if not disaster.

Florian’s production assistant is his niece, Charlotte Benedict, who is straight out of drama school. Charlotte believes that, with its characters made up of witches and medieval war lords, the piece needs updating to make it ‘relevant’ to a modern audience. The cast assembled by Florian comes from a variety of local amateur dramatic groups and is somewhat baffled by this experimental approach. Although the play is essentially about a murder and its consequences, everyone agrees that when an actual MURDER happens, this is taking theatrical realism and stage too far!
