How long will it take to orchestrate the mystery?

This mystery is designed to be an evening's entertainment and the focal point of your event. Give yourself two to two and a half hours to stage it.


How many people can participate in this mystery?

From six to 50 people can comfortably participate in the party and contribute to the investigation. 

Does everyone have a role?

The plot includes six suspects. These individuals are assigned roles related to the crime. Everyone else gets a character, with relationships to other characters. It is a fun event for everyone, both the outgoing theatrical people and the more reserved friends too. Everyone becomes a sleuth using effective investigative techniques to figure out the intricacies of the crime. Since the guilty party doesn't know who did it, everyone can attempt to solve the case.

The Plot

Libby LaBelle, art critic for the influential "Graphic News," used her vitriolic columns to destroy the careers of many artists. A good review from Libby meant instant success. A bad review could signal the end of the line for the career of even the most talented individual.


​And, Libby didn't limit her critiques to the art world. She'd regularly write scathing comments about the events she'd attended, panning the planning as well as the cuisine and wine selections. That's why, over the years, her list of eminent enemies grew. She was loved by her adoring fans and hated by the targets of her poisonous prose.


​When it was announced that impressionist artist Pete Casso was to preview an upcoming exhibit at Scarab Creative Arts, Libby made a point of letting everyone know she'd be there to, once again, pen a negative review of Casso's latest masterpiece.


Who would have suspected that the review would never be printed? For, in the middle of an acerbic attack on both the artwork and the occasion, Libby collapsed in a heap on the floor of the gallery, her worrisome word processor silenced forever.


Did someone take the opportunity to do away with her explosive expletives? And, what past unknown indiscretions could have prompted the passion? It would take a palette of investigative skills to solve the case and identify the murderer.
