Murderous Scribblings

In a past life, I ran a business, with two co-writers, called Murdering The Text. We provided murder mystery play scripts to be used as fundraisers by amateur theatre groups, schools and small fundraising organisations.

Although Murdering The Text is no longer in existence, you can still purchase our murder mystery play scripts. Costings are on each individual play page.
