Cult hit event Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote is coming to Manchester with an interactive screening of the classic Murder, She Wrote episode “Birds of a Feather”. Jessica Fletcher heads to San Francisco but soon gets caught up in a murder mystery only she (or you!) can solve!

Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote is a unique and hilarious night featuring games, prizes and audience participation, with special permission from NBC Universal Television. Following a sell-out show at the Refract 21 Festival at Sale in July, the show is coming to The Brewers in Canal Street for two nights only. See the critically-acclaimed show Time Out rated one of 2019 (and 2021)’s 50 Great Nights Out in London that has played to sell-out audiences across the UK and Australia.

Hosted by super-fan Tim Benzie, Solve-Along-A-Murder-She-Wrote features:
* A race to solve to the crime, via the Fameometer and the Suspiciometer!
* A Cabot Cove quiz!
* Clips and biogs of the campy guest stars!
* A singalong to the theme song with new lyrics!

I’d challenge anyone to sit through this show and not get utterly invested in figuring out whodunit, whilst smiling at the comfort that this 80’s drama brings.”
