The Hawke Papers (Produced Moon)

By | Published on Saturday 17 August 2013

Dr Marcus Hawke has been murdered and you, as the best detectives in town, are urgently needed to discover the events that occurred, exonerate the accused, and arrest the true culprit. A macabre, interactive Victorian murder mystery that will have you ducking under tables for clues, reading testimonials and interrogating all the characters. A tentative audience morphed into vocal, argumentative interrogators and a set of fantastic actors managed to stay utterly in character, even when the detective limelight was not shone on them. Intrigued? I won’t give away any clues, save one pointer: get there early, to save a highly sought seat.

Laughing Horse @ The Blind Poet, until 25 Aug, 11.00am.
