Tips for writing a murder mystery fundraiser
As a fundraiser for my theatre company I am thinking of writing a murder mystery dinner, but as we write comedy productions I intend it to be funny more than anything.
We have a big hall, for a big audience.
We usually write plays, so this will be a new experience to us.
Do you have any tips?
Sorry - I don't have any tips for writing a murder mystery game, at least, not immediately to hand. I'm not sure what sort of murder mystery you have in mind - there are many different sorts (including dinner theatre, versions where you have suspects that groups of detectives interview, the round-based games in the shops, and the interactive parties that I tend to promote on this site) and for most of them I wouldn't know where to start.
In terms of the interactive games, I'd start with this article, which covers the main points. (Note that it's written for freeforms/larps, which are the same as the interactive murder mystery games that I promote on this site.)
