Bloody Scotland: The Generalist
A Murder Mystery Musical by Sophie Hannah and Annette Armitage
John Danes, a ‘generalist’ who does all sorts of strange jobs for all kinds of peculiar people, is about to set off to Idlewyld House, former home of the late Harriet Landrigan – the most famous and bestselling romantic novelist the world has ever known – when a strange man knocks on his door. This stranger knows John is expected at Idlewyld House, though he won’t say how he knows. When asked who he is, he says only ‘I am the murderer’, and then he disappears. Arriving at Idlewyld House, John asks if he has been summoned to solve a murder, and is assured that nothing of the sort has happened. Then one of the other guests is found dead at the foot of the stairs…
The Generalist is a staged reading of a family-friendly murder mystery musical, containing a serious puzzle and thirteen completely original songs with brilliantly catchy tunes. Think Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap meets Tim Minchin’s Matilda!
