Murder Mystery Valentine
Murder Mystery Weekend

Roses are red, violets are blue, there has been a murder at the Maple Shade Mansion...could it be YOU? Join us for a fun, interactive and need we say, intriguing weekend as you and the other guests are the mysterious characters and are invited to rendezvous for the weekend to try and solve the murder.

February 17th-19th, 2023

The theme will be “Love Writes a Deadly Verse

A Murder Mystery Written by Jack Pachuta

Love is in the air at the Valentine's Day meeting of The Poets Turntable as this group of amateur and professional writers focuses on amore, yes…LOVE. Romance abounds when each member takes a turn to thrill the audience with similes, metaphors and word pictures that make even the coldest hearts beat faster. But, in the midst of this memorable gathering, one of the poets staggers to the podium, and after uttering a few cryptic words, is overtaken by death. Someone has done in a fellow Turntable member in the midst of one of the year's most sentimental events!

It's time for poetic justice as everyone gathers to investigate the death and to find the culprit who turned Valentine's Day into a bad rhyme.
