THIS MURDER MYSTERY PLAY CONTAINS A FULL SCRIPT PLUS  DETAILS OF HOW TO RUN A SUCCESSFUL MURDER MYSTERY EVENT.

Gillette Sharpe is the proprietor of the village hair salon, ‘Razor Sharp’, Glee-on-Sea. She has built up her business over many years and now has a large clientele. Magnolia Mollis is a stylist at ‘Razor Sharp’ and the daughter of Alcamilla Mollis who is the first customer in the salon, on this fateful morning.

Alcamilla is the owner of a garden centre which she wants to expand. Most of the villagers are against the expansion and have organised a protest march to the Town Hall, in neighbouring Codsport. Gillette has also collected 200 signatures on a petition which she intends to pass on to the council. Alcamilla’s sister, Rhoda Dendron, is next to enter the salon and is incensed that Alcamilla inherited all their mother’s estate through a devious trick played on the old lady just before she died. She also owns the local florist shop. Sal Monella, the owner of the popular ‘Sal’s Sunny Sandwich Hut’ on the high street, comes in next and tells everyone that she is having husband trouble.

Olly Ander cleans windows for a living but has an ambition to own a garden centre and is engaged to Magnolia. He spends most of the morning cleaning the salon’s windows and is in a perfect position to observe events inside. Enter Mario Warner, a rather dubious character, who is a member of the local council and, possibly, has another less savoury, financial interest in the local community.

The morning carries on fairly smoothly until Mario and Olly have an altercation, in the salon during a thunderstorm, which results in a near blackout. Chaos reigns for a few minutes but soon everything is back to normal – or is it?

A body is discovered. The police are summoned and interrogate the suspects of the murder.
