Murder Mystery Weekend! November 1st & 2nd, 2019

One Mystery Author Too Many

A long list of famous mystery authors and detectives are invited to spend the weekend with I. Reed Toomuch, reclusive billionaire and avid mystery fan, on his private island off the coast of Maine.  Each guest has a negative reaction upon discovering one of the invited authors is none other than Royal Pane.  The day after they arrive, someone puts Royal Pane out of their collective misery, but no one knows whodunit.  Although the survivors are not especially distraught about the murder (good riddance was a phrase repeated by many), an envelope is discovered on the fireplace mantel that raises eyebrows.  Neatly printed on the stationary inside is a single sentence.  I’ve only just begun.

As one of the famous authors or detectives invited, your only option is to use your sleuthing skills to unmask the killer before it is too late. Hopefully, you’ll be one of the survivors when help finally arrives on Sunday morning. Good luck!

Guests are encouraged to choose their favorite mystery author or fictional detective as their persona for the weekend. If you prefer, a character will be provided for you. There will be a short performance on Saturday night, during which the identity of the murderer will be revealed. Will it be you?

Participation in the performance, with appropriate costumes, is encouraged but not required. If you are seeking a triumphant return to the stage your role will be more robust.  Alternatively, you can choose to be an extra. Expect a short survey to make your preferences known.
