Murder Mystery Night – The Late Gatsby

Murder Mystery Night – The Late Gatsby

31/10/2020 19:30

Interactive Online Comedy Murder Mystery

Led by a comedy actor, you will help the Detective to solve the murder by investigating the evidence, and questioning the suspects. (Some of you might be more involved than others!)

There’ll be thrills, spills and plenty of laughs along the way. Can you stay alive long enough to solve the mystery?

Dressing to theme is encouraged, but not essential!

Roll up, roll up for the biggest party in town! Enigmatic Millionaire, the Great Jay Grimsby is throwing one of his famous shin digs on his Superyacht with the rest of the Fried Egg glitterati and YOU are invited! All the movers and shakers are here, playboy rival millionaire Dom Blucanyon, his flighty wife Maisy Day Blucanyon, ‘resting’ golf pro Jordan Master-Baker and Grimsby’s shady neighbour, Nick Castaway. Fireworks and Fun are in the air, but is something more sinister a foot….?

Our Murder Mysteries are interactive, and everyone gets chance to join in (or, just sit and watch if that’s what you want to do, we cater for everyone!). They are performed with their tongue firmly in their cheek, and if you like laugh out loud comedy, then this is the night for you! And don’t worry if you haven’t read the book/seen the film/watched the TV series. Our show bears very little relation to the theme we are lampooning!

Here are some points for you to consider to make sure you get the most out of the experience:

The show is delivered as a Zoom Meeting. You will be sent the joining instructions via the email you booked the tickets with.

We suggest you link to Zoom via a laptop or a PC. This event is more suited to those devices than a phone or tablet.

During the show, you will be helping the detective to solve a murder. You will be provided with evidence pertaining to the subjects during the investigation. We will be posting this evidence on our social media channels

Facebook: @LaughandLetDie

Twitter: @laughletdie

Instagram: @laughletdie

So it is a good idea for at least one of your party to have an extra device handy so you can peruse these documents at your leisure without having to click away from the Zoom call.

….And, we actually need four brave, talented souls to be more involved than others!

This is not a difficult task, you will be given the pieces to read, and supported through your section by the host. You don’t have to learn or rehearse anything beforehand, we have been doing this for 8 years now, and we usually just provide the information during the show.

We are sure that in a University full of students, we will find four big enough show offs to take these parts on!

We are asking for anyone who would want to be considered to play a part to signal their intention to us on the Facebook Event page by following this link.

There are two female parts and two male parts in all of our shows. To put yourself forward, please post in the discussion comments ‘Male Part Please’ or ‘Female Part Please’ (if you want to give us any more information to sway our decision, it probably won’t hurt!). You will also have to follow the page.

You may not identify with either of these genders, and we are happy for you to put yourself forward, but the parts that are on offer are male and female.

We will pick guests at random to play the parts, and you will be sent the docs you need via Facebook Messenger. We will be aiming to send you the documents before the show, and it is completely up to you if you want to dress to character. One thing that we do ask is that you rename your Zoom account with the character name, so the host can pick you out easily.

And lastly, we know how much most students love interacting with social media, so please feel free to post pictures and comments to all of our social media pages. The hashtag is #LaughAndLetDie 

So we’ll see you there! You might want to bring a pad and pen to make notes, but the only things you really need to bring is a sense of fun and your thinking caps!
