Murder Mysteries
The Foul Players
Murder Mysteries are our stock in trade and Burtie has currently written in excess of 80 different storylines, including Halloween and Christmas mysteries, Sherlock Holmes themed events and many TV show themed shows. We are always willing to write new bespoke mysteries for your event, but can of course resurrect old favourites if that is what you want. Among murderous goings on at the 'Bake Off', and 'Blackadder' or 'Harry Potter' themed mysteries, some of the most popular have been:
