Appeal For Witnesses of Classic Crimes

Theatre Royal, Nottingham is appealing for witnesses following four bizarre and seemingly unrelated crimes that have been reported.

In past weeks, Nottingham has suffered a spate of mysterious crimes and the city is awash with unanswered questions. How did a local police sergeant’s magic show end in an attempted murder? Why was a celebrity novelist’s death mistakenly reported in the papers? Just who is the handsome lothario who has been rescuing aristocrats? And why were two women, enraged by infidelity, jealousy and revenge, locked in a room together with a bottle of poison?
