Our expert team has designed four types of Murder Mysteries that are suitable for most occasions. You can choose to be involved in the Solow and Duo productions as a character, and you become an integral part of the performance. At the same time, you must identify who the murderer/murderers are.
In the Trio and Classic formats, our talented actors entertain you, and your role is to decide who the murder/murders are! If your group size does not fit into these categories please contact us to discuss further options. If you feel that these do not meet your occasion; we can also design a Murder Mystery, especially for you; have a look at the information below or peruse our Bespoke Events page.
THE SOLE MURDER MYSTERY
Suitable for smaller groups of up to fifteen people using one actor, each guest is given a new identity, and character background as each guest becomes a suspect in the Murder Mystery.
THE DUO MURDER MYSTERY
Following similar lines to the Solo style format but with two actors, this format is suitable for group sizes up to 40.
THE TRIO MURDER MYSTERY
Suitable for audiences from ten to sixty-five, the “Trio Murder Mystery” includes a choice of storyline from our “Trio” range and three actors.
THE CLASSIC MURDER MYSTERY
Suitable for audiences from ten to one hundred, the “Classic Murder Mystery” evening includes a choice of storyline from our range of themes and four actors.
WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ABSOLUTE MURDER SOLO OR DUO MURDER MYSTERY?
You and your guests are immersed into the narrative of a Murder Mystery, and you must attempt to solve the murder. Our Solo and Duo Murder Mysteries are ideal when you are looking for an activity where you can socialise with friends and enjoy yourselves doing something different. You eat a delicious meal whilst investigating a murder and you can even dress up, it is entirely up to you!
The event begins during pre-dinner drinks with a suspicious and larger than life character / s mingling with you and your guests, revealing the latest gossip and intrigue whilst setting the scene for what may happen over the meal. During the meal, each guest is provided with a new identity and character background and most importantly, they become a suspect in the Murder Mystery. Throughout the meal, several scenarios are presented to you, and just when you least expect it, the victim falls dead. It is even possible that the victim dies in front of you. After the death, it’s time for you and your fellow sleuths to investigate and find the culprit who committed the murder.
Throughout the rest of the evening, guests can interrogate suspects, and there is lot of comedy banter between guests and performer/s until coffee is served, and you are invited to solve the ‘whodunit’. There is a dénouement followed by the winner being announced and prizes or certificates
Themes & Stories for SOLO OR DUO MURDER MYSTERY?
WHAT HAPPENS AT AN ABSOLUTE MURDER CLASSIC OR TRIO MURDER MYSTERY?
Our Classic and Trio Murder Mysteries are engrossing, exciting and fun. Four actors are featured in the Classic and three actors are involved in the Trio, and you may see them reappearing throughout the duration of the tasty meal.
The intriguing mystery begins with a drinks reception, and during that time a suspicious and interesting character/s socialises with you and your guests. The character ensures their presence has been noticed, and they drop clues and red herrings while setting the scene of what is to follow. Once in the dining room the actors then perform the opening scene, usually lasting around ten minutes. The first course is served and the actors retire while you eat. Towards the end of each course the actors return for interrogation, and then before the next course is served, the performance continues.
The rest of the event runs to this format with guests free to interrogate suspects as well as comedy banter between guests and performers until coffee is served and you are invited to solve the ‘Whodunit’. There is a dénouement followed by the winner being announced and prizes or certificates awarded.
