Our clients often complain that it’s tricky to find a murder mystery experience that isn’t ‘cheesy’ or ‘old fashioned’ despite how pricey murder mystery packages can be. And we happen to know that many of the actors supplied for these murder mystery experiences, are volunteers or working for expenses only, and as proud members of Equity performers union, we simply don’t think that’s good enough. Especially if you’re paying top dollar for a professional murder mystery product.
So when we were approached to create a murder mystery experience for a group of diners at Spitbank Fort in the Solent, we couldn’t wait to get stuck in casting actors, writing a bespoke script that suited the audience and the amazing venue, and of course, paying our actors for their rehearsals and performance. We used a mix of male and female actors – some professional and some amateur dramatics – and the feedback was sensational.
“It went down so well! The story was great and the cast was amazing! Was a great twist on a formal dinner”
Here are a few clips that we caught on a discreetly located Go Pro, as well as some clips from one of the guests’ social media uploads. The partygoers were brilliant sports and the Forts were, as ever, sensational hosts.
