We were commissioned by private clients to create a bespoke immersive murder mystery at a New Year’s Eve soiree, in a beautiful house on the Welsh coast.
Unlike normal murder mysteries, this was a fully immersive evening with guests playing characters in the narrative, their actions carefully guided to reveal their characters’ dark secrets to one another. Framed around a champagne reception and three course meal, guests were transported into the 1930’s and a riveting Agatha Christie-esque yarn of love, betrayal and murder.
The piece was created from scratch, each character inspired by descriptions of the guests provided by the host. Unusually for us, no actors were used in the production. Instead we created an immersive mystery kit – this contained a story crib sheet for the host and discreet cues for guests throughout the evening, including secret notes, unexpected telegrams, and a trail of evidence that lead to character revelations, plot twists, and the reveal of whodunnit!
If you are interested in hosting your own immersive murder mystery get in touch here. We can provide an off the shelf kit or one personalised to your party’s specifics.
We promise it’s one of the larkiest ways to spend an evening with friends…
