Founded in 2021, Teasel Productions are about to make a brand new show, in Hertfordshire for Hertfordshire audiences. 

We're a group of Hertfordshire creatives, Nicola Pollard, Kate Miller and Nancy Surman, working in collaboration with Hertfordshire Libraries to create this new, interactive piece of theatre for families. Book Sleuths in a Bind: A Very Puzzling Case  will be entertaining, engaging and fun for all the family!  

Our two intrepid Book Sleuths have a mysterious disappearance on their hands, and they need all the help they can get to solve this curious case. Help Sam and Ally crack codes, pore over puzzles and unravel riddles before time runs out!

Come along with your family and friends to help our Sleuths find out whodunnit! Our show is designed for children aged between
7 and 11, but anyone of any age is welcome. (All children must be accompanied by an adult.)
