Murder: Staged Live Comes to Scotlands Oldest Working Theatre

True Crime Talk Featuring Live Psychopath Testing Is Coming To Dumfries

Murder: Staged Live

Do you think you could get away with murder? According to research psychologist and psychopathy expert Cheish Merryweather (as seen and heard on BBC) many people do. A new true crime talk; ‘Murder: Staged’ will be touring the UK from September this year to uncover the phenomenon of staged murders.

Cheish said, “The ‘CSI effect’ has created a new type of killer – one that is forensically aware and is out to mislead an investigation. ‘Murder: Staged’ will explore the lies embedded in crime scenes and share the expertise from those who dig deep for the truth.”

Following sold-out success in 2023, Cheish returns to Theatre Royal with all-new personality test that aims to look at the darker side of human nature. Cheish said, “There will also be a live psychopath test which will be a good indication of who we really should be keeping a close eye on.”

Taking place at Theatre Royal on Sunday, 8th September 2024; this 2-hour talk will include in-depth forensics, reconstructed real-life crime scene walk-throughs and a deep dive into cases that have not been seen on stage live before. This is an unmissable evening for any true crime fan and tickets are already selling fast.
