Stage your own Comic murder mystery event!

Montgomery Rex is the Headteacher of ‘Berrigan Tuft School for Young Gentlemen’. The school is highly thought of yet, despite its prestigious reputation, has fallen prey to a malignant force bent on teaching ‘Monty’ a lesson he’ll never forget!!

The action takes place in 1937, during the summer holidays, inside the Headteacher’s study. The school’s dynamic leader, Montgomery Rex, is spearheading preparations for the forthcoming academic year. Yet he’s under tremendous pressure. Despite its leafy, picture-postcard appearance ‘Berrigan Tuft’ is in trouble and all manner of problems have begun to crawl out from under the cracks in its parquet flooring… rivalry, jealousy, lack of resources, poor  academic performance and general staff dissatisfaction. Yet events take a sinister turn when ‘Monty’s’ found murdered, strangled at his desk. Detective Inspector November is immediately dispatched from Scotland Yard to face this, the most rigorous of school inspections!
But who could be capable of murder…?
Ophelia Rex, ‘Monty’s’ disillusioned, flamboyant wife?
Miss Pippa Lemon, his (overly) personal secretary?
Miss Barbara Forbes-Marshall, the strident Head of English?
James Tonic, the school’s inept caretaker?
Mr Harry Smith, the introverted, secretive Science teacher?
Or, Mr Brute Savage, the no-nonsense, narcissistic Deputy Head?
November is set to face the sternest of examinations…!
‘Who Killed the Headmaster?’ has an approximate running time of one hour and fifteen minutes. It has 9 named characters (but with doubling-up could be performed with as few as 7). Of these, 4 are male, 3 are female and 2 can be played by either.
With its educational setting, the ‘Headmaster’ play is the most popular murderplays title selected by schools.
