A Brush with Death- 5 day virtual murder mystery challenge
26th May 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 31st May 2021 @ 8:30 pm£9.00
|Summary from Eventbrite|
|Join multi-award winning company, MurderedforMoney as we travel back in time to 1923 and the ancestral home of Lord and Lady Rothersfield for this delightful comedy mystery.
It is the winter of 1923 and the provisions of the Late Lord Ernest Rothersfield’s will, which includes a generous allowance for his two children and instructions for the disposal of the estate upon his wife’s death, are only valid for a few more weeks.
The family and close friends of the Dowager Lady Dorothy Rothersfield are gathering at the family house for a family portrait. When she announces her plans to change the will and potentially disinherit her children, tempers fray, accusations fly and plotting to ‘do away’ with the Dowager begins.
Are any of the odd-ball family actually capable of planning, let alone carrying out a murder?
When a death occurs, Inspector Harry Moody, and local Police Constable Joe Sullen, despite their own peculiarities, are tasked with muddling their way through the odd family and finding the culprit or culprits! They are going to need your help.
Described as Downton Abbey meets the Pink Panther. This delightful comedy mystery is a must for lovers of family dramas, crime fiction, silliness and fun.
Tickets: £9 per household plus voluntary donation of £1, £5, £10 or £20 to our charity partner. (+eventbrite admin fee).
This event is fundraising for Age Concern Hampshire
