You have set the scene for another elegant dinner party. Your finest silver gleams on the linen, and crystal stemware catches the candlelight. Your guests chat and laugh over the classical background music, sipping aperitifs. Then you signal time for the first course.

Enter the Butler and the Maid. Catastrophe follows. The Butler has found his true calling. The Maid thinks he has found another woman.

The Butler trips, spraying a trayful of buns on the floor. The Maid wipes them off on her backside, gives the Butler a dirty look, then breaks into tears and runs crying back into the kitchen. You and your guests hear glass breaking. You slowly rise from your chair, smiling, then rush to the kitchen yourself. The Butler grabs a bottle from the sideboard and begins to guzzle, wiping wine from his chin with a sleeve.  “Women!” he explains, before storming off.

Your guests realize that this is not going to be a boring dinner party. Take a wild ride on someone else’s relationship. Before the night is over something is stolen, accusations are hurled, gun’s are blazing, and everyone lives happily ever after. This is an unforgettable event. These instructions tell you exactly how to pull it off. Ask us for a sample of the ‘script’.

    1. I will get that right out to you. This mystery works best for smaller groups of people – say 10 to 25 people. There are always ways to expand it of course, so if it is interesting to you, we can email about it more. Thanks Lourdes!

  1. We are looking for something suitable for a church fundraiser – not too bawdy but just bawdy enough to be funny. Looking for about an hour or hour and half long play. Can you make any suggestions?

    1. Hi Lisa – because this is an improv script it is as bawdy as your actors make it. It’s not really a play but more of an interactive situation. I’ll send you a sample of the instructions to give you a better idea. ‘Easy Money‘ might suit your event better. I’ll send you info on that too. Thanks for your inquiry!

  2. Hi, are the guests assigned roles or do they just watch and guess as to what is happening. I have hosted assigned role dinner parties from the box kits
    with great fun for all. I was hoping to find something for an anniversary party for about 12-16 people I am thinking that it could be at home or potentially in a restuarant

    1. The guests have no assigned roles the way it is played in box games but it is easy enough to give your group characters if you wish, especially if you give the party a theme. You can go with anything from a gangster prohibition theme to a toga party – anywhere a couple of servers are dishing out the food. This particular party is not a mystery per se, because the butler did do it, so there is nothing to figure out but it is a great excuse to for everyone to be a little outrageous and dramatic because the butler and maid are so very outrageous and dramatic.

      In my opinion this would be best done as a house party rather than in a restaurant, perhaps with caterers to save on work for the hosts. The butler and maid would serve the food and disappear into the kitchen for some indiscreet arguing and melodrama which spills over into the party. A great chance for some ‘legitimate’ eavesdropping. You would want to have actors or extroverted friends (one male, one female) not generally known to the rest of your friends and family play the main parts.

      At some time in the future we will have mystery parties available, with clues, etc, for smaller functions but at this time, this is it.

      We also can work with you to write and put on your own mystery party! That can be a very special, unforgettable occasion. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
