(Tisdale Saskatcehwan, Canada)

I am part of a community theatre group, who would like to do a murder mystery dinner theatre with characters who sit among the patrons, and the story evolves around the audience as opposed to on a stage apart fromt he audience itself (there would be a character fromthe play sitting at each table with the patrons)

Are your scripts suitable for this kind of application, or are they adaptable to this kind of an application?

My response:

Sorry, they're not really suited for that at all - they're designed for the guests to be full participants.
