    Amythest Isle`s idea on our coach trip has made me think, I have always fancied going on a murder mystery night, just wondering what they are like? My luck would be that I would draw the short straw and be killed off in the first ten minutes.

    I have been on a couple. The success of them depends on the willingness of the participants to get involved fully. The first one was rubbish because most people kept being silly about the role playing etc, but the second was great because everyone was up for it. I'd recommend them.



    ps - on the two I went to the victim was one of the organisers so all the guests played through till the end of the game

    A few years ago,at a club I was working in,we bought a kit for a murder mystery night. There was a victim - which we used a scarecrow type model with noose around its neck - and then people volenteered to be "the suspects" so to speak. I was the master ceremonies and the suspects were sat in front of the room with a list from where they answer questions for the members of teams . They could only answer what was written down. The scenario was set and members of teams would come and ask questions to the suspects.

    Eventually,the teams submitted their answers on who was the murderer and then I would open up the sealed envelope which had all the answers. I would read out who WAS not the murderer one by one until we were left with two suspects and then it went to the wire on who was revealed to be the murderer.

    The girl who was revealed to be the murderer was red faced,giggling and was short of feeling nausea.

    It was a fun night,enjoyed by all.

    Hi.

    I have not been on a murder mystery coach event. But I have participated in some, when I was in an outfit called The Leverstock Green Players.



    The first one was presented by a man who was booked for the community centre. I gather he went around different places and normally got people out of the audience. Despite that we specialised in variety shows, our name was put forward in advance of the event. A scenario was put to the audience who were sitting at tables. Each table was a team. One I liked was Mick's Private Dicks. We, the cast were not made familiar with the scenario and what our parts entailed, by a document in a sealed envelope, until just before the curtain went up. The only person in the cast allowed to know who the murderer was, was the person doing the role play. The mystery started and the evening proved a success.



    The following year, the local neighbourhood association combined with us, to present the evening. This time, someone in the cast wrote the script. Again the evening was a success. There was also a ploughman's supper during the interval. In fact, it was my farewell performance with the group. I stayed on after my last variety show, for a few weeks to do it.



    The third one, for a joke, they wrote a script which had me as the victim. Upon waiting to see my reaction, they were disappointed, as I did not go and see it. So I was disappointed as well.



    I did attend the next one. People were taking it seriously, and I must admit it was good fun.



    Unfortunately, they have stopped presenting them. But while they lasted, I found, both as a member of an audience or as someone acting a part, the murder mysteries were a good night's entertainment.

    I took part in one about 5 years ago. Having been an am dram regular years before I got roped in to one set in the local library. Good fun and the audience certainly got involved in the spirit of the things.
