Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
At WHODUNNIT, we provide fabulous 'dinner theatre'. We weave the Murder Mystery drama in between the three courses of your meal, or perform in two halves to allow your guests to enjoy a buffet or afternoon tea during the event.
Guests will play as teams as they sift through an intriguing array of visual clues in the evidence booklet before quizzing the suspects (played by professional actors). At the conclusion of the event, guests are invited to submit their Verdict Sheets before all is revealed and a prize is awarded to the Winning Team…
Do we have to roleplay?
NO! Unlike other murder mystery companies we do not force our guests to play characters. Our cast play the roles in the drama and you are free to get involved up to a level you feel comfortable with. The more extrovert and outgoing in your group will interrogate the suspects face to face with their team's questions and challenge them on their motives, alibis and relationships etc, whilst others are free to watch the action from a discrete distance, eavesdropping on characters conversations and studying the clues in the evidence booklets.
