Ambassadorial functions always carry with them the highest security. With VIPs, ambassadors and celebrities in attendance you simply can’t be too careful.
And yet, despite the increased security, the uncomfortable frisking at the door and the exclusive guest list, Maggie Hatchett, in whose home the function is being held, has been found shot dead on the patio!
She may well have made a few enemies during her long political career, but who amongst tonight’s distinguished guests is responsible for her murder?
Hugh Jinnins – International cricket coach.
Athletic and handsome, Hugh Jinnins has a great body and a charming and witty personality.
Anna Glipta – Art dealer.
Classy and reserved, Anna Glipta has an attractive figure and has a sculptor’s eye for the other men at the ball.
Titus Butt – Entrepreneur.
Despite his youth, Titus Butt has a number of irons in the fire as well as a sizable portfolio of lucrative investments. Needless to say he’s made the list of ‘The World’s Most Eligible Bachelors’.
Debbie Taunt – American socialite.
With links to the French fashion industry, Debbie Taunt is dazzling at any party.
Marc D’Triumph – French ambassador.
Flamboyant French ambassador with a seductive accent and a cultivated look, Marc certainly knows how to entertain a lady.
Chrystal Bahl – Singer.
Able to wow any crowd with her canary-like voice and her peacock display of colour and form, Chrystal shines even without a spotlight and always draws a crowd.
A participative murder mystery evening is an evening with a difference.
Rather than going out for a meal and being “entertained” by our professional team of actors, here YOU are the suspects!
Participative murder mysteries are great fun for those who love to “ham it up”. If you are chosen as a suspect on the evening you’ll be given your character booklet for the night which will contain any lines you must deliver. You’ll also be given information that your character knows about other suspects and background information you will be revealing about your character throughout the evening. If you need any props we’ll provide them too, all you need to do is turn up, in costume and be prepared for a great night out!
You will be led through the mystery by an inspector, who will be providing you with case information as the evening progresses, as well as helping you all to get in the mood. At the end of the night the inspector will also deliver a summary before you have to guess which of you did the dirty deed. Finally, at the end of the evening, the inspector will reveal all by providing the solution and arresting the guilty party! (Don’t worry – all arrested guests are returned!)
A typical evening runs like this:
7.00pm – Arrive at your venue. Have a drink at the bar and admire each others’ costumes. Depending on the mystery plot you might also be greeted by the “soon to be deceased”. Your character booklets will be provided as you arrive to give you time to “get in character” and if you are chosen as a suspect as part of a larger gathering then you will also be briefed.
7.40pm – The murder is announced! (usually by a scream!)
7.45pm – The inspector arrives and announces the mystery. You will be asked to introduce yourselves.
7.55pm – You are escorted through to your dining table for your first course.
8.10pm – You will led into the first round of evidence gathering, questions and answers.
8.35pm – The inspector will provide more information and you will be served by your main course.
8.50pm – You will led into the second round of evidence gathering, questions and answers.
9. 15pm – The inspector will provide more information and you will be served by your dessert course.
9. 30pm – You will led into the third round of evidence gathering, questions and answers.
9.45pm – You will be served with coffee. The inspector will provide a summary and ask you to provide any concluding statements before guessing “who did it”.
10.00pm – The solution is provided.
