The University offers an outstanding range of full time, higher education and degree courses.  Whether you are deciding on a career route or looking for the right training for your perfect career, this is a great place to start.

Students of the Prosthetics Department have been working hard on their end of term projects.  This year all their work is being judged by the famous film director, Derek Terr, who has agreed to return to his home town to review their work and award the prizes.

It is a huge PR coup for the university, but what could have been a triumph turns into a disaster when the visiting celebrity is discovered dead on the campus!

How it works:

This multi-room script was designed for educational purposes and contains scripts for 6 actors and lesson plans for 3 facilitators.  You will need to purchase additional items to support this script including a combination lock briefcase and a 3 digit padlock, fingerprinting equipment.  We are happy to source all the props for you – just contact us for a full event pack and we will provide you with a quote based on the number of guests expected.

This event was designed as a showcase event for students moving from secondary education to tertiary education.  However it is suitable for ages 11-18 as well as adults.

As it was designed for educational use, all the actors work in pairs.  (Children are less comfortable asking questions of strangers than adults, so it gives the actors the ability to prompt questions as needed).

The instructions document (the sample file attached) contains the details of the physical clues you will need to obtain for the evening – these are all fairly easy to obtain props, and we also have supplied some printable clues too.

For these events guests require a special handout and a pen/pencil to keep track of information presented to them.

Due to the nature of these events, and the need for each guest to have a hand-out, we will only print one copy of each file when ordered as a printed kit – which you can copy to requirements.

If you wish further copies of the guest handout – please get in touch so we can find out how many copies you need and provide you with a quote.  We are also happy to quote on a full event kit including all props needed for the show.

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.
