An evening of murder, mystery and intrigue is set to transport Bungay back to the 1920s in a new interactive theatre show.

Strange Fascination will be bringing its brand new immersive murder-mystery show ‘Secrets’ to the Fisher Theatre, in Broad Street, on Saturday, April 28.

A theatre spokesman said: “Attendees are invited to take part in the action, solving clues to work out the murderer in this original piece of immersive theatre.

“The plot follows Squiffy Banningham, heir to his father Thomas’ fortune.

“Squiffy is holding a party at the theatre to celebrate his recent windfall - but what secrets do the guests hold that could reveal the truth about the death?

On the night attendees are encouraged to wear their best 1920s fancy dress to fully get in the spirit of a classic murder-mystery caper.

“We can’t wait for this one.”

The company states its mission is to “create engaging and diverse entertainments in the open air, in theatre and in bespoke spaces” and “to help revitalise the theatres profession in East Anglia and beyond”.

The theatre spokesman added: “They completed a highly successful run of children’s outdoor theatre shows in Norfolk and Suffolk during the summer of 2017 which gained an endorsement from Stephen Fry.”

Strange Fascination’s ‘Secrets’ will be appearing at the Fisher Theatre at 7pm on Saturday, April 28.
