This year, my new one-man show is called Mystery Makers and sets the rather ambitious goal of creating a mystery story live on the spot. No plan. No limits. Some props. You, my audience will help The Fictional Detective write, direct and star in a brand new brilliantly-plotted whodunnit, full of twists, turns, drama, danger and herrings of every colour imaginable. Expect audience participation, off-the-cuff improvisation, fast rapping, laughter, a couple of admittedly awkward bits, ukulele playing and fun.
The Fictional Detective is a character created for the online Blue Peter mystery, when he jumped out of a book to solve the mystery of the missing last page. He has now jumped even further and will be appearing this year at Latitude Festival, Wychwood Festival and hopefully the one you are organising.
Here is a taster of how it went down at Wychwood Festival, May 31st 2019 (with Gemma Hastilow illustrating).
