Murder in Cheriton

Playwright Liz Bourne & David Burnfield Director Liz Bourne


A village wide murder mystery set in the 1920s starting at the village hall in the afternoon. Detectives were invited to interview the suspects dotted around the village, have tea in the hall/incident room and come back to the school hall in the evening for a meal, a fully licensed bar, the Grand Reveal of Whodunnit and enjoy some 20s music and a Charleston dance competition! This was a fundraiser for the Cheriton Village Hall.

Written & devised by Liz Bourne and David Burnfield of Murder Me Softly
