The town of Highbourne is abuzz. The Prince Regent, Richard, and his wife, Princess Liesl, are on a royal tour of the kingdom. The royal entourage has stopped for two nights at Ridgerton Park, the estate of Lord Bertram. He is hosting a grand dinner for the royal couple and has invited several influential families from nearby. Hopeful young ladies are in attendance to find a wealthy husband. Wealthy young men are avoiding the gold-digging ladies and their pushy mothers. The less fortunate young men are in search of a young lady of large fortune.
At the height of the party, someone screams. Lord Bertram, is in his study, slumped over and dead as a doornail.
Who is responsible for Lord Bertram's death? Was it one of the mothers of the young ladies, who have been fruitlessly trying to marry their daughters to any one of Lord Bertram's sons? Did someone murder him for his money? Or did the butler do it?
The game is afoot, both upstairs AND downstairs, at the Ridgerton Park estate- so watch out! The killer may even be you!

Broadway Murder Mysteries, where YOU are the show! Broadway Murder Mysteries was created in March of 2020 when many Broadway performers, writers, and talent were out of work. The Broadway shut down had a huge impact on the theater community, and Broadway Murder Mysteries was created to give jobs to out of work talent, while creating something inherently theatrical that theater and mystery fans would love.
