Hugging the coastline of a tropical island retreat is the luxury hotel known to all as the Hotel Royale. With a casino, gym, spa and pool to compliment the variety of five star rooms, this hotel attracts the rich and famous, celebrities and stars. Having a ‘no questions asked’ policy, the Hotel Royale is also known to play host to many clandestine meetings. It would not be uncommon to come across smuggling operations or criminal exchanges occurring within its walls.
This evening, one of the regular guests has been found dead in his room. With no planes due to leave the island until tomorrow and nowhere else to stay, it means someone in the hotel – in fact, someone in the restaurant! – is the killer of Fransisco Scaryminger!
With such a mix of spies and villains within the walls, which one did the dirty deed?
Roger Damsels – MI6 Spy
Sauve and sophisticated, Roger has enough witty patter and chat up lines to titillate and amuse any number of eligible lays! He always has a gun in his pocket, whether he’s pleased to see you or not!
Ivanna Romp – Russian Spy
Proud of her Russian heritage and very alluringly dressed, Ivanna is not a girl to be trifled with.
Ernst Fuzzyfelt – No 1. at Spectre
With a massive ego and a white cat that goes everywhere with him, Ernst has a foreign accent and is impeccably dressed.
Bunny Ryder – Shell diver
In a bikini or dressed in relaxed Caribbean style, Bunny is very easy on the eye and a recent conquest of Damsels.
Oddnob – Chinese Henchman.
More British than the British, Oddnob is usually seen in a black suit with a bowler hat, but he often goes out incognito on social occaisions.
Diane Otherday – Spy
Smart, sophisticated and incredibly attractive, Diane Otherday has always been able to turn heads.
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.
