About The Generalist – A Murder Mystery Musical!

Scene Zero presents The Generalist – a murder mystery musical!

A STAGED READING, WITH SONGS

Book and lyrics by Sophie Hannah, music by 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 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 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!

Sophie Hannah is an internationally bestselling crime writer and the author of the new Hercule Poirot novels, commissioned by Agatha Christie’s estate and publishers. Annette Armitage is a composer, musician and teacher who currently leads several music ensembles in Cambridge, including the Hayward Trio and Ensemble in the Round.

Performance lasts 2.5 hours to include interval.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Generalist – A Murder Mystery Musical! are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
