How do dinner theatre scripts work?

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.

Introducing the suspects

Count De’Bodies (local aristocracy)
Tall, debonair and very charming, Count De’bodies has money, power and looks.

Carrie De’Bodies (wife of Count De’Bodies and eldest daughter of the deceased)
Aristocratic and of excellent deportment, Carrie is the eldest daughter of Ed Burried and principle heir to the estate.

Ivanna Bitzeneck (youngest daughter of the deceased)
Wacky, fun, and not the slightest bit stuffy, Ivanna has rebelled against her aristocracy and become one of the proletariat.

Ben Tover (butler)
Solemn and reserved, Ben Tover is measured, methodical and willing to serve.

Doug Oles (funeral director)
Discreet, unobtrusive and wearing the traditional black, Doug is a pillar of support for the bereaved.

Customise this game

This game can be customised to fit your event for an additional fee.

It’s hard to give “ball park” figures for what different customisations would cost however we’ve attempted to HERE.

Please do contact us for a free quote if you would like any customisations on your game before purchase.

Remember… if you just need 1 extra person, or 1 less person, why not have someone play the inspector role?

The inspector can usually be male or female as the “for real” inspector can simply invent a new name for themselves.

Some hosts prefer to play the inspector role as it means they can work on the catering while the round plays out amongst their guests.
