We participated in the Virtual Murder mystery at Screech Manor from our laptop at home and it was fantastic! The actors were great and really professional, even with some zoom glitches! They made the event so engaging and fun! Highly recommend it as a fun activity to do (especially with covid 19 lockdown restrictions!) Thanks for a great evening Murder mystery events! You were all so amazing over zoom, we can’t wait to eventually attend one in real life!””
