It’s 1908, and there’s been a murder! Wyndergate Manor’s mystery novel-obsessed maid takes it upon herself to deduce who did the deadly deed after she decides that renowned detective Charles de Chevigné is a fraud.

Content Notes

This is a murder mystery, so there is talk of violent themes and death. Minor knife fight with prop knives (small amount of stage blood possible). We also selected ABRUPT LOUD NOISE as we’ll have some sudden sound effects coming from offstage e.g. a scream.
