Fancy being part of a murder mystery?

Press Release   •   May 09, 2017 12:59 BST

Five volunteers are needed to become part of a “Shetland Murder Mystery” held at a local library in June.

The event is inspired by crime writer Ann Cleeves, and participants are being asked to take on the roles of providing witness statements, forensic reports and, of course, guessing whodunnit!

A prize will be awarded to the audience member closest to solving the murder and copies of Cleeves’ books will be available to buy on the night.

The event will take place on a Thursday evening in June, the final date to be confirmed. There are no auditions and no need to commit to rehearsals.

Cleeves said: “I am so lucky to have been supported by so many passionate librarians and booksellers in my 30 years as an author. Writing this murder mystery script is my small way of saying thank you, and I hope everyone has fun trying to unravel the mystery!”
