Murder At The Midnight Hour

Murder At The Midnight Hour

THE STORY

Going to the chapel and we’re gonna get murdered, uh, sorry, married…Hippies and wealthy snobs just don’t mix!

Mr. Henry Hogget and Mrs. Abigail Windsor cordially invite you to attend the midnight wedding of Jewel Opal Hogget to Roger Quinton Windsor on December 31st, 1969.

Weddings are usually such groovy occasions. Unfortunately, this one will be the exception to the rule. This one will be deadly!

Great choice for New Year’s Eve. Why? The bride and groom will tie the knot in a ceremony designed to end at the stroke of midnight (kind of a hippie thing to do, is it not?). It’s do or die time now – literally – before the new year rings in.

Requires 6 people to play the prime suspects.
For groups of 20 or more people.

THE YEAR: 1969

SIX PRIMARY SUSPECTS:

Jewel Hogget

The bride and daddy’s little girl. Having been raised by only her dad, she’d do anything for him.

Roger Windsor

The snobby, whiny, mama’s boy groom. A real limp noodle with a dilemma he wishes he didn’t have to even think about much less act on!

Henry Hogget

The father of the bride. First, he lost his beloved pig farm in Boar’s Tush, Alabama and then he lost his wife, Pearl and has had to raise Jewel all by himself. Now he has to give his daughter’s hand in marriage to this Roger fellow! What’s next?

Abigail Windsor

Roger’s mommy dearest. A snobby socialite who is appalled at the thought of her son marrying a pig farming, garbage man’s hippie daughter. And yet, here she is.

Gregg Pierson, IV

Roger’s best man. He’s very competitive with Roger even though they’ve been best friends since they were boys. Whatever Roger has Gregg wants.

Gert Doppleheimer

Henry’s widowed sister and a surprise guest this evening. It may be best if you don’t mention her to the family. Rumor has it she killed Jewel’s mother.

SECONDARY SUSPECTS:

EVERYONE will be actively involved in this mystery because it will be their job to solve the case and because you’ll be encouraging them to come in costume and in character.  Use any or all of these secondary suspects if you have “extra” cast members you want to use or if you have some guests who want to take on a character but not take on the full responsibility of a primary suspect.  Give them their secondary suspect instructions (included) and let them run with it. 

FOR LARGE GROUP MYSTERIES (75 OR MORE):  We suggest you cast your secondary suspects. During the mystery it will be the secondary suspects’ “job” to act as general support for the primary suspects. They’ll roam the room gossiping about the goings-in, quiet the audience down during a main action, answer questions, bring primary suspects to tables for questioning and make sure your guests have seen the physical clues that have been revealed.

Peace Onearth

Jewel’s best friend and maid of honor.

Muffy Tidwater

She’s in love with Roger and she will confess her love tonight.

Manfred

Abigail’s chauffeur and manservant (she can and will order him around all night).

Brownie

Roger’s nanny (that’s how much of a mama’s boy he is!)

Billy Joe Cyprus

The preacher man. Henry’s best friend and lover of all things Leary (Tim Leary that is).

RATED: PG-13

CONTAINS:

Murders. May/December affair. A woman who drinks too much.

SUGGESTED ALTERNATIVES:

The older woman having the affair with a younger man can be toned down to her have a mid-life crisis unrequited crush on the young man. The woman who drinks too doesn’t necessarily have to although she does need to remain pretty mean and vindictive.
