A stunning performance which cleverly combined some serious and convincing acting with a light, soufflé style approach. Very appropriate.
368 THEATRE COMPANY produce a monthly murder mystery (written by Nigel Fairs and including a delicious dinner) at the Arundel Jailhouse, usually on the first Friday of every month. Tickets available here.
"They say it’s adversity that brings people together – and there is nothing more unsettling than having an American TV show host shot to death in front of you while you are in the process of dissecting a prawn. The murder mystery itself was well constructed – in the best traditions of Agatha Christie, every clue was scrupulously presented amongst all the red herrings... 368 Theatre Company staged a stunning performance which cleverly combined some serious and convincing acting with a light, soufflé style approach. Very appropriate."

What happens at a Murder Night?
As soon as you enter the venue, colourful & entertaining characters (played by professional actors) welcome you to your tables and into a fictional world of mystery & intrigue. Before you know it, a MURDER has occurred, and you are invited to assist the LOCAL POLICE with their enquiries.During each course, a different suspect sits with you at your table, giving you the opportunity to pose your own questions, as gradually the drama unfolds... During coffee, you are invited to fill in your MURDER ENQUIRY FORM, and then, in true Agatha Christie style, the murder is re-enacted and an accusation made...At the end of the evening, the table that gets the most clues wins a prize.
THE VENUE is largely up to you. If you have a favourite restaurant (whose proprieters won't object to a little blood and mayhem!!) we will be glad to perform there. We will also perform in your home, in your local village hall, Scout hut - you name it, we'll go there! Alternatively, we can arrange a venue for you, with a meal inclusive at a very reasonable price per head.
THE MURDER We have many scenarios, ranging from Miss Marple-style romps to X Files investigations!! If you would prefer to have a murder night with a particular theme, we will write one especially for you (though special scripts require at least one month's notice)
