Et Tu, Shakespeare? - Murder Mystery Night

  • 19 Friday 19th May 2017 at 7.00pm Location: Undercroft Restaurant, Durham Cathedral Tickets £35 from events@durhamcathedral.co.uk

‘Dream on, dream on, of bloody deeds and death’

Richard III.

Some 400 years after Shakespeare's death it seems the Great Bard may still have secrets to share. Rumours have spread that a previously unknown and unpublished play has been discovered in the catacombs beneath Durham Cathedral.  A sequel, no less; ‘Lots To Do About Something!’

However, mere hours before the manuscript can be authenticated, renowned Shakespearian scholar Professor Oliver Worldsastage is found dead; Stabbed 22 times in the back beside a final message written in the victim’s own blood. But is the play the thing, or did someone have other sinister reasons to want the Professor to shuffle off this mortal coil?

Join murder maestros Highly Suspect for a Shakespearian inspired interactive murder mystery event. Analyse the evidence, interrogate the suspects and separate the fact from the fiction to solve the murder and catch a killer.

Fun, frivolity and fatalities guaranteed!

Tickets £35 per person, including meal and drinks reception (to be purchased in advance. No refunds will be given).
