England is still recovering from World War II. The village of Thornhill is slowly returning to its idyllic, pre-war state - that is, until a child is murdered. Now, in the search for ten-year-old Daniel Mason’s killer, all of Thornhill’s nasty, sordid little secrets will come crawling to the surface.

The year is 1946. Nine months ago, World War II ended.

Two weeks ago, a ten-year-old boy was murdered.

Two days ago, a detective arrived from out of town, determined to poke through the private lives of every family in Thornhill to find the boy’s killer. The decision facing every resident of Thornhill now is whether to help the detective and ensure justice for a child killer - or to keep their own secrets safe.

The Wasp’s Nest is a larp of small-town murder by Lee Patrick. It has 11 player spaces, and all 11 are required to run.
