Join the Friends of the Irmo Branch Library for an evening of murder, mystery and fun as we bring you an interactive murder mystery play, “Death’s Shadow,” directly to your living room via ZOOM. You bring the dinner, we’ll bring the mystery.
You’ll be joining Inspector Geordie Thursday and 8 suspects in the English village of Grinchester live on air, interrogating them, listening to the evidence and submitting your solution via a poll at the end of the evening.
We’re using Zoom’s Webinar technology to bring this to your computer screen, so you may see references to webinar. But don’t worry. It’s all in good fun!
Both performances will start at 7 p.m. (6:45 p.m. log-in) and will last about 2 hours. Places are limited, so please book quickly. When you purchase your ticket, you will be sent a link to join the Zoom session on the date you choose.
This murder mystery is suitable for teens to adults. Buy one ticket and your whole family can watch together! What a bargain!
The plot: Welcome to Albert Street, a friendly and quiet neighborhood in Market Snodsbury. It’s Coronation Day 1953, and the neighbors, including Vicar Sidney Chalmers and his housekeeper Mrs. Mafire, have gathered in mystery author Dexter Runcie’s library to watch the ceremonies on Dexter’s new television. Someone notices that Dexter has fallen asleep in his chair! There’s laughter until they realize he isn’t sleeping . . . he’s dead!
