Very interesting to combine murder mystery (that might have taken 2 hours to solve) with a show. Certainly had our group talking well after the show about what we had and hadn't solved. Well put together, challenging and easier clues. Lots to get through in an hour, and agree that more paper copies would have helped. I struggled to read and recode on a phone. But a fund hour

First of all, it is not socially distance groups of two. Its ram as many people in as possible.
We are told a few times that masks are mandatory, which the majority respected.
The mystery can only be solved by using evidence provided by the players, but there were not enough copies to go round, and we were encouraged to work with another bubble.
Surely we shouldn't be encouraged to mix even with partially relaxed rules.
I felt very uncomfortable about this and even considered leaving.
The print on the paperwork handed and also, if you used your phone was far to small, even with glasses.
Sadly in my option, not as pandemic safe as it could have been, other places have done far better and over all rather boring due to being unable to join in, due to lack of consideration of the performers.

Thoroughly enjoyable piece albeit way more challenging to solve than i could ever have imagined (total failure on my / our team's part)
Engaging cast who performed exquisitely, involving the audience every step
A great Fringe show
[Just wished more of the audience had worn masks, so many didn't ]
