The interactive event offers not only a theatre show but a chance for people to get involved in something new and immersive and is the Lincoln/Newark date on a UK tour.

The Murder Trial Live invites the audience to review the evidence, listen to the witnesses and reach a verdict.

It recreates a real-life murder trial whilst providing an in-depth understanding of the British justice system.

The case of the Jack Brewer Murders is about a man who has been charged with the murder of Julia Moores, Robert Harwin and Lee Barnes.

He stands trial for the murder of three people following the discovery of human remains at an allotment in 2023 and he is thought to have consumed his victims’ flesh.

Extensive police work and forensics suggest Brewer could have murdered up to 23 people over a period spanning a decade but their identities are still unknown.

The jury will hear to the case and all the evidence and then conclude if he was innocent or guilty.

This year’s live show is based on the real-life events of both Jeffrey Dahmer and Dennis Nilson, US and UK convicted serial killers who seduced and murdered their victims in cold blood.

Both men mutilated their victim’s bodies before disposing of the remains and in some cases partially consuming their flesh.

Natalie Thompson, the national audience manager at Showtour Events, said: “Showtour events bring immersive experiences like no other, whether you’re interested in crime, entertainment or just having a unique night out, MTL is for you.”

The Lincoln/Newark event offers evening sessions from 6pm until 11pm and matinee sessions from midday until 4pm.

At the Court Room Arena there will be a fully licensed bar and street food vendors.

Tickets can be bought at the Murder Trial Live website for several locations nationwide.
