It’s New Year’s Eve 1899. One by one, a colourful cast of characters arrive by boat to the haunting and isolated Monkswell Manor. That night, famous murder mystery author Gertrude Crump is murdered, mysteriously! The boat becomes dislodged in the storm. No one can leave until the truth is uncovered. The clues are all there….can you deduce Who Killed Gertrude Crump?

Acclaimed actor/puppeteer Tara Travis animates this tale with a cast of original puppets and a gamut of voices in a haunted house fraught with surprises.
