Edinburgh Fringe 2018

September 9, 2018

Now that we are a week in September we can reflect on the fantastic time we had performing at our first Edinburgh Fringe Festival throughout August! We had over 100 teams of eager mystery solvers join us over our 11 day run, solving alternate mysteries 'Et Tu Shakespeare' and 'The Matinee Murder.'




Some of our favourite team names include : ‘

Richard The Third Row’

‘Taming of the Shrewlock Holmes’

‘Drop Your RozenPants’

‘An Ode To Willy’


And our two favourites:

‘Othello, Is It Me You’re Looking For?’


‘Never Was There A Tale Of More Strife,Than That Of Macbeth And His Stabby Knife’


And even though they only had an hour to solve our devious crime, we still asked them to also write a highly amusing limerick to sum up the event - these are also some of our favourites!


Team Name: Cryptic Bloodhounds
Limerick: An Actress died on the stage
In Edinburgh that's all the rage
The murder was stunning
The killer was cunning
You'll find out on the last page


Team Name: Four Red Herrings
Limerick: An actress died on the stage
But who could solve this outrage
Sherlock Holmes on the prowl
Poirot's calling it foul
And the killer's still on the rampage


Team Name: Puck Bottom
Limerick: A Shakespearean Scholar is dead
Many a play he had read
He was poisoned and stabbed
Like a doner kebab
A more Scot's death cannot be said


These final three might not be quite limericks, but we love them so much they will forever have a place in our Hall of Fame!


Team Name: Creme Brulee
Limerick: An Actress died on the stage
Found she was in a state
Sister or brother
Who could've done it
It's up to the law to decide.



Team Name: Morecambe Thimble Collectors Private Detectives
Limerick: An Actress died on the stage
I have pocketed her wage
I hope no one suspects
I can now pay my debts
I will buy myself a place on a limerick writing course.


And finally, one epic poem!


Team Name: Guilty as Sin
Limerick: An actress died on the stage
Her cubic zirconia was all the rage
It cost her her life
And The Ratttrap trouble and strife
Olivia's death stopped the show
Alas the audience were told to go
But the audience all stood their ground
As murder mystery they were bound
They solved the murder in a flash 
So off to the bar they could dash!


We had a wonderful time at the Edinburgh Fringe this year, and we will be back in 2019 with two more mysteries!
