Welcome to the exciting world of Minebury City Theatre! You have all been working towards this premiere for a long time: “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare.

But the production seems ill-fated. Patrick was rejected a few weeks ago when he asked Juliet’s hand in marriage. As such, everyone was anxious to see how it would turn out when the two lead actors appeared on stage together. At first the premiere seemed to run smoothly. At 8:00 pm, the curtain rose in front of a full house. The play lasted three hours including the intermission.

At the end of the play, at 11:00 pm, the tragedy occurred: Juliet picked up the stage dagger behind the stage from amongst the other props. She dramatically thrust the blade into her body. At first the audience was enthralled by her impressive performance. But when Patrick saw Juliet’s blood and called out for a doctor, the audience realised what they had just witnessed was in fact a real tragedy: Somebody had switched the stage dagger with a real knife.

Arriving shortly after, the emergency services could do nothing but pronounce Juliet dead at the scene. The question is: Which of the people present is responsible for Juliet’s gruesome death?
