The Weekend Sun Competition

Murder on the Menu is Detour Theatre’s new madcap supernatural comedy. 

Sophia has been conned into buying a derelict theatre. Now, with crushing bank loan payments to make and no money, the jobless Sophia decides to defy the odds and dig her way out of her financial mess by reopening the theatre as a cafe.

Her already dire situation worsens when she discovers that the theatre is inhabited by the pompous ghosts of dead Shakespearean characters, who are hell-bent on keeping their home just the way it is.

By chance, Sophia discovers that the only way to get rid of the ghosts is to murder them as they were killed in their original plays. At Sophia’s cafe, murder is now on the menu. 

Murder on the Menu will take to the stage at Detour Theatre from March 28-April 13. Tickets are available online via: or over the phone on: 0508 iticket. They’re also available over the counter at Tauranga i-SITE.

The Weekend Sun has two double passes to see Murder on the Menu on opening night, March 28, for two lucky readers.
