Host your own Murder Most Unladylike mystery event

A note from The Honourable Daisy Wells, President of the Wells & Wong Detective Society...

Murder Most Unladylike mystery event

Dear Detective,

You may well know me from my excellent detective work. Along with my vice-president Hazel Wong, I have already solved five murders - very cleverly, I might add. So I am in a perfect position to guide you through this murder mystery game.

In this pack you will find all the materials you need to work through the mystery – this script (expertly guided by me, Daisy Wells), profiles for each character, the crucial alibis and confessions for the main suspects and activity sheets for you to photocopy and share with participants for all their detective theories.

The only things you will need to provide are a fountain pen and pair of spectacles, both key clues in the murder. 

Good luck – I expect you’ll need it. I, of course, would not.

Happy detecting!

The Honourable Daisy Wells
