On Good Friday 1957, Quinton sweetshop owner Fred Jeffs was murdered. Over 60 years later the case remains unsolved. Writer, performer and great nephew of Fred Jeffs, Graeme Rose, has been investigating Fred's untimely death - interviewing people who remember the murder and looking at its impact on the local community. Using gathered stories, he re-examines the case with its clues, speculations and findings; presenting a story that has all the ingredients of a classic noir thriller. Help him solve this intriguing mystery.

Tickets are free but please book in advance.



Fred Jeffs: The Sweetshop Murder has been created as part of The REP's pioneering community engagement programme, Furnace.
