Radio Play aftermath

The mystery of the Body in St Helens Library has been solved! On a dark (but not stormy) night a group of amateur detectives and fans of detective fiction came gathered in St Helens Library after hours for a classic reconstruction of the crime. Would be sleuths who have been following the story through the three ACTS online got to come to see the evidence and clues in person to put their theories to the test.
The talented voice actors of St Helens brought the story to live with the final dénouement. The lights were turned off, like the night of the murder but that didn’t stop the actors performing. Thanks to (left the right in photo) Luke, Steve, JB, Marion and Vicki for acting.

After hearing from the suspects gathered back at the scene of the crime, we had a short break where the audience were asked to put forward their own theories about who the murderer was and why. Please to say TWO people guessed right and for the right reasons!
The radio play will be online soon, alongside a short film. Take a look at the photos from the event while we edit the audio.
