Visiting guests will experience not only a superb quality restaurant, but also opportunities to join the estate game keeper on shooting and fishing expeditions, as well as walks in the estate grounds which afford the most breathtaking views that the Scottish Highlands have to offer.
Unfortunately this evening the guests are also offered the opportunity to become witnesses to a gruesome murder. The question is: can they solve the crime by the end of the night?
Glenn Morangie – Laird
Passionate about the estate, but handless when it comes to managing it, Glenn Morangie has ever been conscious of his title and conducts himself in a responsible way even when drunk.
Blast McGrouse – Game keeper
Swarthy, suspicious and sour, Blast McGrouse stalks around the grounds with nary a good word to say about anything.
Toby Mory – Glenn Morangie’s Cousin
Charming, handsome and a wealthy land owner in his own right, Toby Mory has all the social skills his cousin lacks and is never short of women.
Dee Stilerrie – Estate Manager
Efficient, attractive and carefully groomed to figurehead the Estate’s image, Dee Stilerrie runs a very tight ship and takes ultimate responsibility for the guests’ every comfort.
Nessie Loch – Cook
With a cheery disposition and a comforting presence, Nessie is well liked in the kitchens and although her cuisine is not exactly a la carte, it is certainly warming.
If you’re looking for a murder mystery evening which supplies entertaining sleuthing while you dine, then our Dinner Theatre style murder mystery evenings are just what you are looking for.
Each mystery is designed to be run in one room within a hotel/restaurant setting during a three course meal.
There are five suspects (our cast). One murder occurs before the event (the discovery of the body usually begins the evening) and one murder occurs mid-way through the evening.
These mysteries are written as interactive dinner theatre with a series of scripts as well as interactive questioning by the guests. They are fun, melodramatic and engrossing.
Sadly they are usually not usually appropriate for young children due to the number of deaths involved!
Sample running order:
|7.00pm||On arrival, guests are greeted in character by the cast.|
|7.35pm||Round One script – The murder is announced.|
|7.45pm||First course is served.|
|7.50pm||Round Two script – The suspects are identified.|
|8.10pm||Plates are cleared from first course|
|8.20pm||Round Three script – The plot thickens.|
|8.30pm||Main course is served and the actors mingle with the guests giving them the opportunity to ask questions.|
|9.10pm||Round Four script – A second murder.|
|9.20pm||Dessert is served and once again the actors mingle with the guests to allow interrogation!|
|9.50pm||Round Five script – The final revelations.|
|10.00pm||Coffee/tea and formal questions session after which the guests will complete their answer sheets and hand them in.|
|10.20pm||Round Six – The solution and prizes for the winning sleuths.|
