We are excited to have been invited by Mo Marsh, Mayor of the City of Brighton and Hove and long-time member of Brighton Little Theatre, to take part in a murder mystery at a Royal Pavilion Dinner on 9 March in support of the Five Mayoral Charities (Martlets, Rise, Sussexx Heart charity, Clocktower Homeless Charity and Albion in the Community). The script has been penned by international, best-selling thriller writer, Peter James. The script is a series of monologues which will be delivered to the dinner guests by a Narrator and four characters – the chief suspects…..
(NB: Words won’t necessarily need to be learnt off by heart but well enough to be able to deliver mostly out to the audience)
