Wonky Chocolates were at one time the best known chocolate brand in the world, renowned for its originality and flavour.
Guests have been gathering all day for a spectacular press launch of a brand new selection of unique chocolates; a range quite unlike any other! However, before the launch party can get underway, disaster strikes! Mrs Pail, mother of Freddo and one of the executives within the company, is found dead, surrounded by chocolates.
The question is… who killed her and why?
Willy Wonky – Executive consultant.
More than a little eccentric and full of wacky ideas, Willy has a childlike charm about him and a very sweet tooth!
Freddo Pail – Owner of the chocolate factory.
Mentally agile and with a good head for business, Freddo enjoys life and lives it to the max.
Klaus Tutite – Food critic.
A man with celebrity status and used to having people run after his every whim, Klaus is larger than life at any gathering and a difficult man to please.
Violet Noregard – Marketing director.
Talkative and extremely flirtatious, Violet is always the centre of any conversation and very easy on the eye.
Verucca Pepper – Celebrated journalist.
A real fashionista, dripping with jewels, Verucca is a girl who knows what she likes.
Goldie Ticket – Personal Assistant to Freddo.
Attractive and enchanting, Goldie gives out a glow all of her own in any room she enters.
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.
