Stage your own Comic murder mystery event!

  • Who Killed the Pop Star?

 ‘It’s a mystery, it’s a mystery. I’m still searching for a clue!’ The day the music died  has inspired an 80’s themed murder-mystery that’s a guaranteed smash hit!
 
On a Manic Monday in 1986, Derek and Cuthbert Thompson (the Thompson Twins) are riding high in the charts as the duo 'Wha-Hey!' Yet at the Monastery Road Studios a Purple Rain-storm is brewing.  Moody and introverted Derek is becoming increasingly dissatisfied with his brother's playboy lifestyle. He feels that he has all the talent whereas all Cuthbert seems to be interested in is Relax-ing and Livin’ on a Prayer. The pair are definitely heading for a Chernobyl of a split, but when a photoshoot unexpectedly goes wrong Derek ends up far more Dead than Alive. But who would want to kill him? Could it be…?
Cuthbert, the twin brother with ‘the hair’ and an attitude?
Billie-Jean Culshaw ‘Wha-Hey’s’ flailing manager?
Eileen Hassle, the record company PA who’s In Too Deep?
Geoff Trantor, Derek’s stern, former Biology teacher?
Annie Sprinkles, Derek’s clingy ex-girlfriend, or
Miracle LeSash, a club singer who’s determined to put the Cat Among the Pigeons ?
Detectives Leather and Barton have their work cut out to solve the case and avoid a Cruel, Cruel Summer!
‘Who Killed the Pop Star?’ is a one-hour ten minute Club Tropicana of a whodunit. There are 11 named characters- 3 male, 4 female and 4 of either (although with doubling-up the piece can be staged with 9 performers). Because of its frivolous 80s atmosphere, pop music themes, and the youth of many of its characters, the play has proved popular with groups with boundless energy.
