Murder mysteries tend to have a carefully planned plot to make the audience suspect every single character – but a new production will turn that theory on its head.

Murder She Didn’t Write is an improvised play which will entertain Weston audiences in November.

As if an improvised show was not hard enough, it is the audience which will decide how the show will go.

A spokesman for production company Degrees of Error said: “Take up your magnifying glasses and don your deerstalkers for a never seen-before and never-to-be-seen again evening of murder, mayhem and making it up on the spot.

“Miss Crimson poisoned in the parlour by a mince pie? Mr Gold exploded by a Christmas cracker in the games room? You decide, but will you guess whodunit?”

The show, which is aimed at over-12s, will be staged at Theatre Tropicana at 7.30pm on November 29.

Tickets, priced £10, are available online at
