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.|

Murder - Two murders are undertaken, so violence is suggested.

Smoking - two characters attempt to "light up" in public, which results in one of them dying.
