In this unique event the audience will take on the role of the detective. Together with Hemming you will work out who was behind this murder, and why it matters.    

Henry Hemming presents his account of the brutal killing of Frank Heggarty, highlighting the bravery of the men crucial in ending the Troubles in Northern Ireland, and the determination of one detective in his dogged search for the truth. Relying on archival research, interviews, and the findings of a new complete police investigation,the questions Four Shots in the Night tackles: how did the Troubles really come to an end? Was it a feat of diplomatic negotiation, as we've been told–or did spies play the decisive role? And how far can, or should, a spy go, for the good of his country?
