Hagley Woods, Worcestershire, 1943: Four boys find a human skull hidden in a tree. Police then discover the partial skeleton of a female. Despite countless enquiries, the woman cannot be identified.

Then the messages appear.

Tracing a case that has baffled investigators for 70 years, Pregnant Fish have been given access to  police documents in order to try to solve this murder on stage.

A mystery that stretches from Birmingham to Berlin, from Nazi spy rings to witchcraft, this is the perfect show for anyone with an interest in true crime
