Murder for the Asking

A play by Derek Benfield

The play takes place in the furnished ground floor flat of a converted house in a suburb of a big city. The time is the mid 1960s. 

Think of a British murder mystery: what comes to mind? There's always a member of the police force asking a lot of questions, especially when his interviewees cannot possibly remember where they were on the day or night in question. Who can sort out the truth from the lies and the red herrings that shift suspicion from one character to another?

What incriminating audience will lead police to the perpetrator? These ingredients and more can be found in the murder mystery, "Murder for the Asking," written by a Yorkshire playwright, Derek Benfield, who has done it all.
