Dying for Dinner - make your party go with a bang (or a scream, or a sort of strangled croak) Our team of talented actors will turn up at your event and present one of a choice of murder, mystery evenings for your guests. The performance can interleave with a meal, and will include plenty of interaction with your guests so they can ask questions and use their deductive skills to find the guilty party or parties. To assist them in their task, they will be given several clues that could be useful, or could just be annoying and deliberate diversions. (Oh, and did we say? It's a whole lot of fun!)
