The Cases

Cases for The Game’s Afoot alternate each evening, when booking your preferred performance it will state for which Case you are booking. If you would prefer to see the other case select an alternative date. Full schedule details.

Case 1: The Case of the Poisonous Poet

A serial killer is on the loose and three bodies have been found, one each night over the past three evenings.  In each case the victim was killed in the same way - stabbed in the heart with a poisoned pen - each with a grizzly poem pierced through it.  What links the victims?  What is the murderers motive?  And who might be next?  Solve the case of the poisonous poet before they strike again... 

Case 2: The Case of the Bloodthirsty Beast

A mutilated body has been discovered.

Could the rumours that a fearsome beast is roaming the moorlands baying for its next victim be true? Or has something vicious escaped from the travelling circus? Perhaps there's just a murderous maniac on the loose?

Whichever way there are murky goings on afoot and it's up to you to solve the mystery and discover the truth in the case of the bloodthirsty beast...
