It’s 1857 in New Orleans. The Mystick Krewe of Cochon is having an end of Mardi Gras Ball hosted by Governor Fayette Warren and his wife, Raylene. The surprise guests include a few pirates (in disguise) searching for a treasure – a dead man’s chest if you will.
COMMENT TO ORGANIZER: The Mardi Gras Ball is optional – it can be any sort of gala event or party – but there is a pirate twist to this mystery that makes 1850’s optimum. You can move it to modern day but the pirate theme will lose some of its swashbuckling fun.
Cutler Sinslayer’s nervous wife who has a plan to dramatically change her life.
He says he’s an actor from the Theater of the Vampires here in New Orleans but he is really the nefarious pirate, Jack Blackbird.
Lilly Laveau’s seafaring beau who has just returned from the Orient.
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.
Sookie Sinslayer’s brother, a wannabe pirate; dumb as a rock. He’s constantly “playing” pirate (like a little kid would). He also falls madly in love with Lilly and her knives.
A very eccentric, very superstitious local who wrestles alligators, charms snakes and claims to be psychic. He also thinks that he and Annabelle are best friends. Annabelle would strongly disagree.
The local undertaker. Formerly betrothed to Raylene Warren and still bitter she broke off their engagement to marry Fayette. He loves blood and gore more than just about anything else in this world.
