Vintage Murder

STORY

You’re invited to the last wine auction the Tortellini Brothers Winery will ever hold. The historical winery is being sold due to the death of its owner, Georgio Tortellini. And it’s such a crime! Literally.

*We’ve made it a winery; you can make it whatever you want (an historical building, an estate, etc.)

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

SIX PRIMARY SUSPECTS:

Toni (Antoinette) Tortellini

Georgio Tortellini’s youngest daughter. She’ll do anything to hold onto the winery and carry on her father’s legacy. She does have a plan to make that happen — a plan she’s already put into action. 

Olive Tortellini

Georgio’s eldest daughter. She wants to sell the winery and its acreage to Joe Bob Biggs, her new boyfriend. Only she can’t seem to convince Carmine Blanca, the executor, of that and she can’t contest the will because she’ll be disinherited! So, what’s a desperate girl to do? 

Nigel Tuesday

A lily-livered mama’s boy who’s often taken advantage of because of his wealth tied to his inability to say no. He’s gotten himself into quite a dilemma and needs the sage of advice of his mother. Unfortunately, Gertrude is gambling in Reno right now and not answering his calls to her. It’s making him frantic.

Carmine Blanca

He became Georgio’s driver after giving him a ride when Georgio’s car broke down in the Nevada desert. Everyone (but Carmine) was surprised when Georgio named Carmine the executor of his estate – with a 5% executor’s fee.

Joe Bob Biggs

He’s a land developer who owns the acreage neighboring the winery and wants the winery’s land to build a large (and need we say garish?) strip mall. He was hoping Olive would be his ace in the hole but she’s proving otherwise.

Jessie Jones

The local law (and FBI reject). She lays claim to the Tortellini Winery on behalf of her father who Georgio fired shortly before his death. She feels her father is due some sort of severance compensation after 25 years on the job and she feels he was unjustly fired. So far, Carmine Blanca, the executor, is rejecting her claim.

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.

Rocco Rosetti

Carmine’s tough guy crony who is clearly “connected”.

Dr. Jacobi

Olive’s shrink who advises her and talks her through her “stressful” situations.

Barney Schneckel

Jessie’s new and enthusiastic trainee who is too much of a newbie to see that Jessie is a zealous law and order fanatic. He’s like a puppy dog who only wants to please. Think Barney Fife from The Andy Griffith Show.

Zach Henry

The winery’s sexy gardener and Toni’s boy toy. They clearly lust after each other but do their best to keep their relationship under wraps. He is her staunchest defender.

Dr. Jerri

Nigel’s doctor and substitute mother.
