Murder Mystery Evening April 2017
The Phar Phetched Phantom
A thrilling and mind-tickling murder mystery written and performed by Lacey Green Productions on 27th March in aid of the Princes Centre.
55 Rotarians, their partners and some friends filled the dining area and bar at Whiteleaf Golf Club for an evening of entertainment featuring:
• An upper crust woman who builds walls and has a peacock fetish
• A dodgy electric car salesman with a stash of cash and Italian wine
• A slimy accountant with an unhappy childhood and a penchant for electronics
• A smooth-talking, retired vicar who may be open to blackmail
• A former Russian spy turned double agent
• A republican, Canadian architect whose buildings all look like log cabins
• An ecstatic medium who has just struck lucky and has made ethereal contact with;
• “The Phantom” who, in her lifetime, knew all the secrets that the others tried to hide and was universally disliked
• Plus a Narrator, who is a wannabe poet, doubling as an overworked prompter with a sidekick Sound Man who insists on making all his own equipment
• And don’t forget, there are also dogs and peacocks
Rotarians were divided into teams of six to eight and asked to come up with the culprit and the motive, with a prize for the best answer (as judged by LGP). This was won by the ‘Laughing Policemen’. In addition, the most original and amusing answer, even (and especially) if wrong, was collected by John Hughes’s table.
Overall, £340 was raised from the evening, of which £250 was pledged to the Princes Centre.
There is an option of repeating the entertainment in future once LGP have written a new mystery!
