A Dinner to Die For
Back for its fifth Comedy Festival run, it's not molecular gastronomy, but a wickedly funny musical, murder-mystery dinner show.
Set in 1928, Lord Daventry hosts his party bash. Rumour in social circles is that he will announce his engagement to Miss Fanny. Agatha Christie in spirit – all cut glass accents, pearls, flapper dresses and monocles – with lashings of sexual innuendo and double entendres.
Party guests are allocated a role for the night and encouraged (but not required) to indulge their inner artiste by dressing and behaving in character. They play the game as detective for the night whilst mingling over dinner. Subplots emerge and the evening begins to gather pace and spices up into an hilarious romp peppered with music, murder, mysteries, disembodied limbs and suitably hysterical screams. As shows go this is interactive entertainment at its best!
