REVIEW: “I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did in writing Thirst for Blood! I belong to a women’s group and we did the play as a social event the week before Halloween. We had a wonderful time! Thirst for Blood was perfect for the occasion! Creepy, campy, silly, scary, it had it all! The “actors” rose to the occasion and did an amazing job. The script had EVERYTHING! The more we read through it, the more it came together. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed it. Thanks again for your wonderful work! We thoroughly enjoyed your murder mystery and certainly hope others choose to try one of your scripts out as well.” Sincerely, Mary Jones, Ann Arbor, MI [READ MORE]

REVIEW: “The Diary of a Burning Woman mystery game was an astounding success, and great fun to perform. So much so that we have decided to do some more…just because we enjoyed it so much. Audience feedback included “We go to these whenever we can in England….we have never been to one as good as this!” and, on a detective sheet, “We have no idea who did the murder and we don’t care…just thank you so much for a dream of an evening”. You are right about the thunderous applause mentioned in the script…we got a standing ovation.” Andrew Bicknell, Benitachell Alicante, Spain [READ MORE]
