The Scene of the Crime
Mrs. Grayson hosted a tea party for her late husband’s four adult children. Angry words were heard, and later, when her maid and butler came into the room to clear the dishes after tea, Mrs. Grayson was found dead on the floor. There was no one else in the room at the time her body was discovered. A renowned detective has been called in to help solve the crime. Would you like to try your hand at solving this mystery? Examine the model of the scene of the crime. Read the witness and suspect statements and see the detective.
Depending upon your budget, space and event logistics, we can go small:
We supply a detective and a "witness" character (either a maid, butler or constable) as well as a 1-foot by 1-foot scale model of the scene of the crime and all the physical clues (incident reports, autopsy, witness statements) to solve the crime. The four suspect characters may be represented by 4 of your guests. Each would receive a page with their background information and our character sheets are written in such a way that the players do not know whether or not they are guilty of the crime, so that they can play as well.
Or we can go big:
We supply a full-scale set 10-feet wide by 10-feet deep with 8 actors playing the maid and butler, detective and assistant and 4 suspects, as well as all the physical clues needed to solve the mystery.
