About Us

What happens on the night?
Never been to a Murder Mystery?
You are in for a treat!
Beginning with pre dinner drinks,
larger than life characters mingle
with guests, dropping clues and
setting the scene. Throughout, you will
witness the events leading to
the dastardly deed.
Then! Just when it all goes quiet...
A shot! A scream and the first victim
falls dead! Right in front of You!
From then on, it's up to you and
your fellow sleuths to interrogate the
remaining suspects and take a
stab at solving "Whodunit".
BEWARE! This is just the beginning
others may well come to a sticky
end before the night is out.
WARNING! Although you will
experience an evening of
high drama and dark suspense,
you may well die laughing
at the antics and shenanigans during
the evening! Whoever unmasks the
evildoer will win the
"Sleuth of the Night Award".

"I would like to thank you for your
part in making the evening run
so successfully. I had been a bit sceptical as
to whether we would appreciate it
, however my fears were allayed
when the performance started,
the script was adapted so that it
got everyone involved and it
wasn't long before
we were all laughing".

How does an Absolute Murder work?
Each Absolute Murder Mystery is
designed and set around a lunch,
dinner or weekend.
Starting with a drinks reception.
Suspicious, larger than life characters
mix with you and your guests,
dropping clues and red herrings
while setting the scene for what
is to follow. Once in the dinning room
and before any food is served,
Our actors perform the first of a
series of scenes, usually lasting
around ten minutes.
The first course is then served and
the actors retire while you eat.
Towards the end of each course
the actors return for interrogation
and the next scene, with guests free
to interrogate suspects often creating
comedy banter between guests
and performers. While coffee is served,
you are invited to solve the "Whodunit".
A dénouement or a re-enactment
of the dastardly deeds follows.
Prizes or certificates are awarded
for the winner and most defective detective.
The whole event, depending on
numbers attending, story-line and
the interaction between guests and
actors runs for between two and
three hours.

"Just to say thank you and to let you
know that we had a great time.
All our staff really enjoyed the
evening and the actors were superb.
To be honest it was a big gamble
as we just chose your Company
off the Internet
and had never
done such an event before,
but it was a resounding success
and we look forward to running
another event with you soon".
