The Hawke Papers

A Victorian Murder Mystery

"A tentative audience morphed into vocal, argumentative interrogators”

Three Weeks

The Hawke Papers at the Edinburgh Fringe


Dr Marcus Hawke has been found dead.

Professional help urgently required. 


The Hawke Papers was Produced Moon's first venture as a theatre company which saw an incredible sell out run at the Fringe, 2013. With audience members having to beg, borrow or steal a ticket to get to see this performance, Produced Moon delivered an incredible premier production, both as a company and as a performance. Short listed as one of Edinburgh's top 50 things to see at the Fringe, The Hawke Papers saw its audience members take on the role of detective in a Victorian murder mystery, interrogating characters, searching the space, accusing those they suspected and ultimately sentencing them. 

"A young company with clear potential."
