Writer & Director William Lambert
William is a writer, director and film-maker, and a proud Yorkshireman. By day he is the Head of Video for Crafty Counsel. He was a quarter-finalist in the Big Break competition for his script 'Clava Cadaver' and his short film 'Revenge a Paris' was featured at SeriesFest 2020, Sunday Shorts and the London-Worldwide Comedy Short Film Festival. He trained as an actor at Mountview. 'There's No Mystery in Murder!' is his first musical, and was born out of a love for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and sleepy Yorkshire villages.
Producer Alexis Rose
Alexis is a management consultant by training, and spent almost 20 years in the City working for one of the world's largest professional services firms. She now works for an EdTech startup, trying to change the world. Musical Theatre has been a huge part of her life. She is the President of Centre Stage London, one of Central London's premier amateur theatre groups, and has appeared in over 20 musicals as well as numerous cabarets, and the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. She loves a spreadsheet, and has produced shows including 'Fame'. This is her first time producing for Fringe.
