Aidey has worked as an actor since 1987 in numerous Theatre In Education projects including the devising and encouraging of drama productions for people with learning difficulties and has performed Road Safety plays for over 60 primary schools throughout the UK. With over 25 years experience in WhoDunnit Murder Mysteries Aidey is the founder of Murder One and works as a script writer, director and producer, as well as acting on the events. Several years ago he adapted his Murder Mysteries for years 6 to 13 with the emphasis on these whodunnits being a unique way in which to develop and improve students’ PLTS communication, teambuilding and presentation skills.
Aidey has also worked in Theatre, Film & Television, including behind the camera as 2nd AD in Channel 5’s “Premature Burial”, and as 1st AD and Production Assistant in many other productions.
“A Death Less Ordinary”, the first film Aidey wrote, produced and directed, was selected from hundreds of entries to be screened at The Leeds International Film Festival. Aidey went on to write and direct the popular shorts “Marry Me, Please”, “Trampled”, “The Violation”, “Flowers Tomorrow” and most recently the half hour documentary “Not On My Watch – The Clarence Newbold Story” and others which have enjoyed screenings at film festivals nationwide. Aidey has also written, directed and appeared in a Specsavers Advert.
His first love however, remains the Theatre. In 1995, having obtained an agreement with Quentin Tarantino’s agent, Aidey adapted and produced the UK’s first stage version of Reservoir Dogs, with his theatre company “Shades Of Carnage”.
After the huge success of his murder mysteries at venues from hotels to castles and even on trains and cruises, Aidey adapted his murder mystery events for the theatre, and toured throughout the UK. Following great critical acclaim from press and audiences alike, Aidey and seven of his cast were then flown by clients to India. This was the first time that interactive Murder Mystery Events had been staged in India, which generated huge media interest, not least from CNN, who ran a feature on our events.
Other diverse work has included his performing as a pianist and MC in a Victorian Music Hall, and role acting work with the NHS and Police training centres nationwide.
Aidey prides himself on the unique interactive nature of his Murder Mystery events, the meticulous attention to detail, and the professionalism of his company and cast.
