Adieu Adieu

In the picturesque village of Seux, near Amiens on the river Somme, stands ‘Le Petit Coque’ a cafe bar run by Francois Derriere with his wife Claudette and waitress Amelie.

Despite the German occupation of 1940, his life has remained largely unchanged, except that his customers now include the various ranks of German soldiers stationed there.

However the murder of a strange man in the kitchens of ‘Le Petit Coque’ spells trouble for everyone as Francois tries to juggle the relationships he has with his wife, his mistress, the Gestapo, a missing painting, two British Airmen and La Resistance at the same time!

    Happy Customer

    I put Adieu, Adieu on as a fund raising event for our local village twinning association. We had 110 people in the audience and it went down very well. We used people from the twinning association as the cast. There are alot of lines to learn for the cast, and we did make quite a few mistakes, but that added to the humour! We also added in a few extra bits/jokes from clips of Allo, Allo, Dad’s army and Inspector Clouseau on you tube to make it a tad funnier, and the audience absolutely loved it! I would thoroughly recommend it, but the cast need to realise that it is time consuming for them and it takes alot of preparation, but well worth the effort in the end!

How it works:

Never hosted a murder mystery before?

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 (the 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. The dead body usually comes back as the inspector for the denouement. You can have a separate actor play this role if you prefer.

A stage manager is also useful for this type of script.

These mysteries are written as interactive dinner theatre with a series of scripts as well as interactive questioning by the guests. The emphasis is fun and melodrama and the plays require an experienced set of actors to learn back story. This style of script is NOT for novice actors due to the amount of line learning, and requirement to be confident ad-libbing.

A good team of actors will usually need between 4-6 rehearsals, OR to learn the scripts and back story in advance and an intensive afternoon of rehearsals on the day before the show.

The plots require props and often theatre blood. These props are often not too difficult to obtain. It’s usually things like knives, glasses, guns (fake obviously!), and small stage props e.g. handbags. Sound effects are also often minimal. Though some plots do benefit from having access to a starter pistol.

How does a “download and print at home” kit work?

Each “download and print at home” kit is provided as a zip file containing a set of PDF files for you to print at home, and a selection of MP3 files to use on the night.

Each dinner party game requires use of a printer and A4 paper (approx. 80 sheets for a 6 player kit – 240 sheets for a 20 player kit), envelopes so you can send out your invitations, and either a laptop or MP3 player (e.g. an ipod) to play the inspector MP3s; OR a CD burner so you can burn the MP3s onto a CD to run in an ordinary CD player.

When you order the game you’ll be sent a link to download the files you need.  The file will be a zip file.  This can be opened with a zip compatible program on your computer.  If you struggle to open zip files – we can email you the game directly over several emails instead – just contact us after purchase to arrange this.
