We will be having our 2nd Annual Murder Mystery Dinner Fundraiser this Friday, April 15.
If you haven’t already done so, get your ticket now – tickets are limited.
Time: 6:00 pm
You can choose to be a participant in the Murder Mystery, or you can sit back and simply watch the fun!
Did you know that murder mystery dinners are actually a direct consequence of real murders?
The murder mystery genre itself didn’t exist until the 1800s when the “Road Hill House Murders,” committed by one Constance Kent, were detailed in the novel “The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher” authored by Kate Summerscale.
Then it was in 1935 that saw the first murder mystery move from pages of the novel to the dinner table, with a boxed game. And in the 1980s role-playing murder mystery games as dinner theater started to become popular.
The type of Murder Mystery Dinner we do at the Outreach Center is called “freeform.” Participants are provided with character backgrounds, and rather than sticking to a script, are given the freedom to interrogate or perform activities with the other guests that will help them solve the case.
The result is Hilarity! If you were at the Murder Mystery Dinner last year you know that we laughed and laughed until our sides hurt!
