WELCOME!
ABOUT US

Welcome to Mat’s Mysteries. Here you will find mystery comedy play scripts for community theatres.

I’m Mat Kelly.

I believe that community theatre should be smart, accessible, entertaining, and above all, fun. I write scripts with the needs of community theatres in mind. My plays are fun mystery comedies, with simple technical requirements, and predominantly, female casts.

Want to put one on?

THE PRESS

I’ve read many of Mat’s plays, attended and organized reading of his drafts and directed one (Murder by the Book). I always enjoy his quirky stories and colourful characters; and from our success at the box office, the audience seems to enjoy them too. I hope to have the opportunity to direct one again soon.”
JP Leduc, Director, DCP
