Great fun ! Beautifully presented with an appropriate amount of puns & audience interaction.
We all enjoyed it.

This interactive show was a lot of fun, however I think in order to improve it they need to simplify the clues as there was so much to read and figure out we barely solved any of them in the time given. A nice touch would also have been the actors doing some more scenes reenacting things to balance the interaction and the actual performance of it. Overall I'd recommend this as something a little different but these are just some ways I think they could make it even better. Felt more like an activity than a show - but nonetheless I enjoyed that aspect of it as I love a wee immersive experience.

Went to Murder At The Movies the day before and enjoyed this just as much. Delightful fun. Book in advance! :)

This was an enjoyable interactive show, a lot to read through and we realised we should have concentrated on one important piece of information, but become too giddy solving everything else. Great fun, we should have kept as a two and not a three, then we may have found the clues and solved the mystery.
if we had time would have gone to the other show as well, as we reckoned it might only be three suspects in that one......

We brought 10 year old kids to this, which was a mistake - it wasn't diverting enough for them, went too fast, and the puzzles were too hard. To be honest, the adults in our group felt the same. The audience had to do most of it, so it's not so much a show as a quiz. It would have been more fun if the actors did more and e.g. had to improvise from audience input.

This is a must for all amateur sleuths out there! If you want to put those “little grey cells” to good use, get yourself along to Surgeons Hall.
