The inspector/facilitator role is essential for the game to work. He/she facilitates the entire evening.
The other characters can be taken from the audience and briefed before game play starts, OR you can select a group to play your suspects in advance of the night and give them time to get fluent in their roles and answers.
The rest of the guests are fully included in the game as they’ll be asking questions throughout the night.
Inspector Bill Nighty – the inspector sent to solve the crime.
Inspector Bill Nighty has a rather unusual method of solving crimes – he involves everyone! Though it has to be said… he does get results!
Willy Makit – Aging Rockstar
Attempting to revive his career and full of bluster, Willy is still very 70s in fashion sense and sex appeal.
Ben Downingtreet – Prime Minister
A young bachelor, Ben is continually conscious of his presentation and is never seen without a suit and tie in public.
Ed Settera – Writer
Fond of Arran sweaters and continually scribbling, Ed has his head too far into his work to notice much else that goes on.
Dilly Duster – Maid
A Londoner through and through, Dilly is conscious of her ‘foul mouth’ but sparkles despite her uniform.
Mia Culpa – Portuguese housemaid
Unassuming and plain when working, Mia has really come to life at the party with a fabulous designer dress. When she smiles she is a rare beauty.
