Arsenic & Lies
Arsenic & Lies is a larp inspired by Downton Abbey and Agatha Christie novels. Rather than being a classical whodunnit, it focuses on the emotions, relationships and secrets of the characters involved: solving the murder might be less important to the characters than pursuing their clandestine affairs, arranging marriages of convenience or blackmailing their enemies.

I have written several larps which have run in several countries throughout Europe. I am a co-organiser of The Smoke (London's international larp festival) and On Location (a weekend long larp about existential angst in the 1930s film industry.) I have run 2 games that I have written previously at Consequences, Here Comes a Candle and Living Embers.
