Comic chaos and murderous mayhem await when you join the award winning MurderedforMoney for their latest virtual murder mystery.
With video footage to watch, clues to unravel , evidence to sort and a chance to win a £50 amazon voucher the game is afoot!
When the new manager of the Ratz Hotel announces his new rather unusual renovation plans, not all the guests and staff are happy. Infact some people are furious!. Secrets, lies, celebrity guests, hidden histories, revenge, and unrequited love all feature with hilarious but deadly consequences.
Starting on the 27th August 2020. Recommended for ages 12+ This production is performed in support of the Minstead Trust and Hanger Farm Arts Centre #savethearts Play at home or away, at a time to suit you. All you need is access to the internet.
How to play
This production will be performed by freelance actors currently in isolation spread over the evenings of the long bank holiday weekend with clues to unravel, video footage to analyse, suspects to question and prizes to be won.
On Wednesday 26th August, you will receive your joining instructions, explaining how to play and introducing the story and the suspects.
On Thursday and Friday evening and Saturday morning you will receive video footage, evidence, clues and information to view at a time convenient to your household. Some households watch the videos each day, others binge watch on the Saturday or Sunday. Either approach is fine, just make sure you have watched them before the live interrogation.
At the weekend you will then have the option to take part in a ‘live’ Q & A interrogation of the suspects. When buying your ticket please choose whether you want to join a Saturday session or a Sunday session (you can only attend one session per ticket) If it is not convenient for you to attend an interrogation, or you prefer not to, don’t worry as a recording of an interrogation will be emailed out to everyone late Sunday night.
Having watched the footage, considered the clues and listened to the suspects, on Monday 31st August, you will be asked to submit your answer by 7pm, with a chance to win a a £50 e-voucher or luxury hamper. (winner to be chosen at random from all correct who-dunnit entries received)
Then later on Monday evening all will be revealed.
The ticket price is £9 per household (+eventbrite admin fee), plus an optional donation of £1, £5 or £10 to the charity. When booking your ticket you also have the option to make a one off voluntary donation to the charity of any amount.
If you would like to buy for more than one household, simply add the email addresses of the people in the other houses (one email per household) in the comments section of the booking form.
Please note: In order to take part in the challenge, your device will need to have the facility to play video. This could be a phone, Ipad, laptop, computer etc..
