All in the Past – Murder Mystery Play Scripts



All in the Past is a murder mystery set in 1934 Shanghai. Vera is a White Russian expatriate turned con-artist whose latest scheme is a psychic business she runs with her landlady, Lily. She is approached by a customer with a proposition to find a woman from his past, who he believes is currently in Shanghai. Vera takes the offer but soon learns that this proposition entails more than a paycheck when the missing woman is found murdered in the home of Vera’s ex-boyfriend. She then embarks on an investigation that forces her to confront demons from the victim’s past as well as her own in order to solve the mystery and exonerate an innocent man.
