Our main aim here at Murdering The Text is to assist you in raising much needed funds for your group or cause.

Our extensive catalogue of plays offers a perfect opportunity to combine a little (or more) profit with a fun event that will entertain your cast as much as your audience.

We offer murder mysteries, non murder mysteries (no dead bodies, just a crime to solve), our full length murder mystery play Slay Bells and even a pantomime, our version of Cinderella.

We also provide a Custom Written Script Service, should our current plays not fit with your cast, stage or event theme, working with you to create a script to suit your needs.

Many of our current plays have been custom written for our customers, our recent ‘A Brush, with Death’ being just one of them.

So, you’ve held a murder mystery event and it went down a storm. In fact, it went so well that you’d like to do it more often. Add your group’s details to our list of Amateur Dramatics Groups for Hire to perform Murdering The Text plays. We regularly publicise this list on Facebook and Twitter (in addition to here on our website), completely free of charge.

Finally, having acted in these plays ourselves, we’re more than happy to share our experience of how you can enrich your events and raise extra funds beyond your ticket sales. With each event pack that you buy, we’ll send you a free fundraising sheet listing suggestions linked to each particular play, plus some general ideas that will apply to most amateur productions too.

Have I missed anything? If so, just drop me an email. I’d love to hear from you.


A little taster

A Brush, With Death logo

I’ve just finished working on the new 20 year anniversary script and I’ve finally come up with a title. Can you guess what it is yet? Well, of course you can after the rather large image above. The new play is called ‘A Brush, With Death’.

I’m delighted with how the storyline for this play has worked out. There’s a colourful cast, each with a different motive for murder.

This play will be available to buy once the first performance has taken place. I’ll have more news for you very soon.
