‘Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the town
a killer was stalking
and mowing folks down.
With poison and dagger
and pipe made of lead,
the gifts in your stocking may kill you instead.
So be our detective and help us tonight
To figure, who done it on this Christmas night.

You are cordially invited to the Christmas event of the season, an exclusive annual Yuletide dinner party!
Take heed, as murder may be stalking the festivities … among the mince pies and mulled wine, a ruthless individual is lurking, a callous killer with a thirst for revenge and a taste for murder. ‘Tis the season … let us deck the halls and fill our cups, but whatever you do keep your eyes open and don’t let your guard down or the next to fall prey to this Christmas Killer could be you!

A troupe of professional actors interact with guests throughout a three course meal and reveal clues and information leading to the identity of the killer.
