Looking for a piece of holiday sun that doesn’t involve street hawkers and paparazzi, the MV Tipanic, a modern cruise ship with a distinguished clientele, is the first port of call for many celebrities and the disgustingly rich.
Cruising up and down the Nile, taking in the sights of the Tomb of the Kings and Thebes, passengers can remain aloof from the maddening crowds and work on their all-over tans (should they choose to) or engage in the more leisurely traditional pursuits of deck quoits and swimming.
This evening however, the passengers have been disturbed; not by street urchins or hawkers but by the announcement that one among their number has been found dead in her cabin!
With the boat a days sailing from port, it can mean only one thing… the murderer is someone on board!
This is an audience participation murder mystery. Please come prepared to get involved. The suspects will be selected on the night and include:
Fifi Galores – Movie star.
Sophisticated and elegant, Fifi has a sparkling presence and some very chic clothing.
Dickie Bow – Decadent playboy.
In a full tux, Dickie has a great body and cuts quite a figure.
Jimmy Capstones – Archeologist.
Young and exuberant, Jimmy has abandoned his tatty archaeologist’s clothing in honour of the cruise and instead is wearing his father’s old tuxedo.
Ben Borinholls – Oil baron.
Successful throughout Latin America, Ben is a man of presence who knows how to win friends and influence people.
Rita Glossimagg – International reporter.
Elegant and refined, Rita knows how to get ahead in life and dresses stylishly to accentuate her natural good looks.
Ariadne Strange – Heiress of a Greek shipping company.
Young, beautiful and incredibly wealthy, Ariadne is always surrounded by wannabe suitors.
