Actor Led Events
We supply the mystery and the suspects, you supply the detectives.
This type of murder mystery is designed for a large group of people who act as the detectives. This could be in any setting – we have performed in a library (tea and biscuits at the end), in village halls (dinner either at the end or interspersed with the mystery) and in a church hall (tea and biscuits half way through and a raffle at the end). The possibilities are endless!
“What a night! People are already asking when the next Murder Mystery evening will be so please thank your Actors for an amazing evening. They were brilliant and entertained us really well, there was much laughter to be heard.” Chris
The murder has already happened and the suspects (that’s us) have gathered together to talk to each other about what has happened. The detectives (that’s you) also have the opportunity to interrogate the suspects. The evening is divided into two rounds, and begins with the narrator setting the scene, and explaining who has been murdered. The suspects then introduce themselves and this leads into their discussion of what has happened. At the end of the round, the narrator sums up what has been discovered so far, and the audience is given the opportunity to question the suspects. At this point there can be a break for refreshments. The narrator opens the second round with some new information, and the plot unfolds further. At the end, the narrator gives a final summing up and there is another chance to question the suspects in the light of the new information. There is a further opportunity for refreshments while the audience make their minds up and fill in their answer sheets, saying who they think the murderer is, and why and how the murder was committed.
Once all the answer sheets have been collected, the narrator explains what really happened, and why it must have happened that way. We then give out certificates and maybe a prize to anyone who has succeeded in solving the case.
“I would just like to say a huge thank you to you
and your talented partners in crime from the ‘Red Herrings’ for
providing such an excellent evening’s entertainment last night.”
