WHAT IS MURDER MYSTERY THEATRE?
From the creators of the best-selling boxed games, Murder Mystery Theatre gives you and your guests the chance to act in a thrilling murder mystery in your own home! The bigger the performance, the greater the fun! With a script packed full of danger, intrigue and unexpected twists – plus suggestions for costumes, sets and props – Murder Mystery Theatre provides everything you need for a truly dramatic night in!
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?
Murder Mystery Theatre is a sophisticated murder mystery party game for players aged 12 to adult. The fully developed storyline encourages players to get more involved in the mystery, and with no “main” character or obvious victim, any one of the players could kill or be killed, increasing suspense throughout the course of the evening. The plot is peppered with red herrings and unexpected twists to keep even the sharpest amateur detectives guessing!
With an emphasis on spontaneity and performance, Murder Mystery Theatre encourages you to take your role-playing to a whole new level. Awards are provided for the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Dressed Artiste, Most Lines Fumbled, Most Imaginative Use of Props, Player Who Took the Game Most Seriously, Player Who Took the Game Least Seriously, and Keenest Detective Mind. The host can even film the entire show!
Murder Mystery Theatre can also be used for large parties. Just enlist eight actors to perform the mystery, while the rest of your guests play detective from the audience. Print additional guest programmes and include them in the final round of accusations!
HOW IS IT PLAYED?
The host sends out invitations and costume suggestions, provides simple props (e.g. a whisky glass, an umbrella) and creates basic makeshift sets (e.g. a restaurant table, a park bench) as described in the Programme. Then players arrive in costume and Act One begins. Each Act contains a number of different evidence revealing scenes. Up to four players act in each scene using the scripts provided whilst the remaining players make up the audience.
During Act One, one of the characters is murdered by an unknown killer. But don't worry that the show's over! After their memorable death scene, that player returns in flashback scenes to reveal crucial evidence.
There is an ‘intermission’ between each Act, allowing food and drinks to be served and players to discuss ‘the story so far’. At the end of Act Three, each player announces who they think is the murderer then the victim reads out the solution. The game finishes with the host presenting awards.
