Agatha Crusty and the Murder Mystery Dinner

Fri 3 November at 8:00 pm

$20 – $25

Geoffrey and Caroline Robertson are having a dinner party to celebrate ten successful years of Mighty Midget Vacuum Cleaners, the company he jointly owns with Tim McArthur, and to add spice to the evening they decide to make it a murder mystery dinner. They are joined by Tim’s wife Anna; Di Crocker, the company’s Head of IT, and her wife Tanya; Martin Charlton, the Financial Director and his wife Lydia; and Geoffrey’s PA Nicola and her partner Nigel.

And Geoffrey has a special surprise – he has invited the well-known crime novelist Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty) to join them. She is in the area promoting her latest book and agrees to be guest of honour. When she arrives, each of the guests is given a part in the murder mystery and a costume to wear, and the game begins.

Then life imitates fiction when Caroline and Geoffrey’s own remote Victorian house finds itself in the centre of a storm so bad that the river floods and they are cut off. Worse, the power fails and in the darkness a shot rings out and one of the guests is murdered. And since everybody else was together when the murder was committed, they are as perplexed as they are worried.

Then, when another murder happens in the same way it is no laughing matter…except this is an Agatha Crusty murder mystery so there are laughs a-plenty. And also a genuine mystery that will keep the audience guessing as well as laughing.

Performances Friday 3rd ,10th, 17th and Saturday 4th, 11th and 18th November
