"It was a thrilling experience to watch. My favourite character was mr Parravinci, because of his hilarious Italian accent. I also really liked Christopher Wren because of his daft comments which were very entertaining. It was a very good show overall, very funny characters, very good scenes, and very mysterious on who was the murderer. I really enjoyed the slow unravelling on each character. My favourite Murderer Mystery by far."

"I liked the GIANT plot twist and how all the characters had traits. I thought Mr. Paravicini was really funny as well."

Stewart - ★★★★★

"It's still going!? Catch this production and you'll see why. An extremely well put together murder mystery and the cast are excellent. It's the second time around for me seeing this one, having caught a previous tour many years ago - and I found it all a bit dry last time around. This time, it's fantastic, and wow, soooo funny as well. A lot of the laughs go to Kieran Brown who absolutely chews the scenery as the campy OTT Mr. Paravicini. The twist still works great and remember to keep it a secret!"
