Deep in the heart of Indian Territory lays the frontier town of Tombstone. As the centre of the gold rush and a staging post for coaches, prospectors and settlers, Tombstone is a vibrant happening place. At its heart stands the Crazy Horse Saloon; a watering hole for dusty cowboys, gunslingers and card-playing mavericks.
With a swaggering Sheriff and a crack shot Deputy to keep the peace, the town is relatively safe as settler towns go. However, this evening, Wyatt Burp, the Deputy, is found dead up on his claim on the outskirts of town and the Sheriff is looking for answers.
Sissy Runaway – Saloon girl
Skirt swishing, leggy singer-cum-dancer, Sissy loves men in all forms, those in uniform especially.
Butch Sundance – Bartender
If you wanna waste away in Margaritaville, then Butch Sundance, bartender of the Crazy Horse Saloon, is your man!
Wild Bill Hiccup – Prospector
Dusty, dishevelled and prone to spitting, Wild Bill Hiccup was a little too slow to keep up with the gold rush and has remained in Tombstone ever since.
Catastrophe Jane – Independent farm girl
Not exactly a typical farm girl, Catastrophe Jane sometimes dresses like a man and is not afraid to show she has the balls to go with it.
Annie Okey-cokey – Sharpshooter
An all-American cowgirl, Annie Okey-cokey never travels anywhere without her guns and is often seen sporting a cowboy hat.
Buffalo Will – Hunter
Larger than life in any gathering, Buffallo Will is well known as a great storyteller, though how much of his tales are exaggerations is open to debate!
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”.
