Skit and clue scripts

Skit and clue scripts

These scripts are suitable for 40-100 guests. They require 7 "actors", only 1 of which needs to be fully in the know. They are incredibly easy to host, the cast can work "script in hand" and the audience do not interrogate them, so they don't need to learn any back stories. Perfect for amateurs and novice hosts.

  • An Italian Job!

    Surely there is no better way to celebrate a special occasion with a loved one than to take them out for a meal? And when it comes to cuisine, there is nothing more romantic than Italian food!

    Which is why, tonight, the Baldini restaurant is full to bursting with guests, and all the waiting and kitchen staff are busy, busy, busy!

    With a restaurant packed to overflowing with dewy eyed eaters, the last thing anyone needs is a murder – but, when the chef’s body is discovered in the kitchen, the quiet romantic diners are drawn into the investigation by a screaming waitress and it is suddenly up to them to solve the case!

  • Trouble at St Teresa’s

    The traditional annual get together of St. Teresa’s Church in the bustling village of Tribley is about to begin. Unfortunately it looks likely to be ruined by rivalry among the clergy and church members. This culminates in the apparently accidental killing of a key member of the congregation… but was it an accident? And who, perhaps, was the intended victim? And which of them is the killer?

  • Murder at Midwynter Manor

    The villagers of Midwynter always welcome an invitation to Midwynter Manor, so they are delighted when they are asked to enjoy Lord Midwynter’s hospitality at the 25th birthday party of his long-lost grandchild, with whom he has only recently been reunited.

    However, not everyone is delighted when Lord Midwynter announces that he intends to change his will and make his grandchild the sole heir. Before long, the celebrations are cut short by a dreadful murder and the guests are asked to help solve the case.

  • Murder in the Grotto!

    Christmas is well on its way and the Regent hotel is full of festive cheer.

    In the hotel lobby Santa is in his grotto, packing up for the night and consuming his complimentary festive snack, and everything seems right with the world.

    But it doesn’t last.

    The peace and silence of the hotel is broken abruptly when one of the waiting staff returns screaming and annouces loudly to all that SANTA IS DEAD!

  • Greased

    With rock and roll music and thick shakes, the Doo-Wop diner is the popular place to hang out in Ryedale.

    However – things aren’t exactly rocking at the diner this evening when Elvis is found outside, dead in the garbage!

    His death comes as a great shock to both the leather clad G-birds and the pink jacketed Fuchsia Girls. However more shocks are to follow when the police arrive and announce that the killer is one of them!

  • The Brandy Butter Murders

    It’s the Brandy Butter Company’s annual Christmas night out.

    The staff are decked out in their Christmas finery, and with Christmas decorations festooning the walls and Christmas music playing through the sound system, everyone is set to enjoy themselves – however, things do not go to plan.

    The party spirit abruptly tumbles when a phone call comes in from the night watchman at the factory. Jack Frost, one of the less popular managing directors has been found… dead. And not just dead, but drowned in a vat of the company’s brandy!

  • Midwynter Murders!

    Everyone is excitedly preparing for the church’s 750th anniversary. Serious fund-raising is underway and representatives of the local community and church are attending the opening night of the festivities at St. Frideswide’s Church Hall. All the important people from the village are there. Unfortunately, so is a murderer!

    Midwynter Magna may seem to be the kind of traditional village where everyone wants to live, but it’s also a village where people don’t seem to live as long as they would like. In fact they seem to be dying rather suddenly.

  • The Transylvanian Trap

    Welcome to the Transylvanian Hotel, a popular resort for the adventurous vampire-curious tourist.

    Tonight however, the Transylvanian Hotel plays host to it’s very own vampire attack! John Gray, one of the hotel’s many paying guests, is discovered dead in his room just before dinner. The apparent cause of death – two puncture wounds in his neck and a distinct shortage of blood.

    The question is: can he or she be found before they strike again?

Flexible and fun!

We contacted Red-Herring-Games for a party for a special occasion. Why going to restaurants to eat is the preferred activity to mark milestones is beyond me and my friends.   The choice of mystery was obvious, looking at the options from New Zealand on the web Red Herring stuck out from the international options.  A quick look at the site and games showed subtlety as well a range of choices.  The numbers you could have for each evening was important,  Red Herring had scaling options a good range of scenarios but most importantly were Jo and team being flexible, responsive and helpful.

Thank you Red Herring Games for the marvellous 'Murder!  Cargo Connections?' event that you organised for us as part of Museums at Night at the Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby. The whole evening went so well and was brilliant fun.  I know from all the feedback that our visitors had a fantastic time. It was really good working with you and I have no doubt that we will do again in the not too distant future.  

A. Nonymous (council employee)

I would like to thank you and your colleague for helping contribute towards our successful conference last month.  Everyone really seemed to enjoy the evening and it was rewarding that so many delegates were able to participate in addition to the main "Actors".  Our conference evaluation froms included the following comments:
  • "Enjoyed the evening entertainment!"
  • The evening entertainment was great and the confusion made it great fun!"
With thanks and best wishes.

I had no idea what to expect before purchasing a ticket for Old, New, Borrowed, Blue, which was being staged at a nearby hotel, and feared it might involve taking part in some way. However thankfully for me no acting was necessary, just some amateur sleuthing. "Wedding guests" of which I was one, were called upon to move from room to room in the hotel in groups, questioning a number of possible murderers with the aim of solving the mystery of the dead bridegroom. The interviewees were really fun characters and gave us all some good laughs. Of course they all had motives and it was a case of identifying the shiftiest. The wedding theme was particularly good, as it fitted well with the venue, the buffet that was part of the evening (with a wedding cake in the middle) and the fact that everyone had been able to dress up to fit in without going to the trouble of fancy dress. I didn't think I had enough "evidence" to actually accuse anyone but later regretted not even writing down my first guess as it wouldn't have been too far off the mark. The evening was great fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it and take part. I would definitely recommend Old, New, Borrowed, Blue as good for getting even reluctant or first-time mystery party-goers involved.  

Alan Young (Personal Touch Mortgages)

What a cracking nights entertainment! We don't get out much nowadays with 2 kids and this was exactly what we were looking for in a good night out. Lots of fun with tongue firmly in cheek and everyone kept guessing whodunnit right to the very end. Would definitely attend another!!!!!
