Very often we are asked if it’s possible to run your own murder mystery evening without paying for actors. The quick answer is “yes”.
We are one of very few (if not the only) murder mystery company who sells our scripts under a commercial or domestic license which means you can have access to exactly the same scripts we would provide under our event management service and run an event at the fraction of the cost of paying for a murder mystery company.
That isn’t to say running your own event is easy! We use experienced actors capable of holding an audience, learning lines and ad libbing responses to guest queries. We also provide all the game materials needed by the guests and stage manage an entire evening, providing PA support as and when required. But it isn’t hard either – with the right acting support, and a good organisation team – you can produce a quality professional evening of your own.
There are a few scripts we don’t provide under license ( we have to keep some trade secrets!) But there are also a number of scripts we don’t provide as an event managed service too – so there’s really nothing to lose.
You can find the details of all our licensable scripts here on the website under the script section.
But don’t feel we will ignore you if you order just the script – far from it! If you need help we’re only a phone call away, and if you would like help sourcing game materials and props – we can help there too. We even supply commercial murder mystery kits, with notebooks, pens, and everything printed up ready to use.
If you’d like us to assist with promotion, advertising and ticket sales, we can do that too – just contact us for a quote.
So if you run your own Am Dram group and are looking to branch into paid work, or have a keen set of enthusiastic “darlings” who want to run a fundraising murder mystery then make us your first call.
