THE STORY

(fictional) Gretna Theatre is rumored to be remounting a 1993 production that was abruptly canceled before its worldwide debut. The cancellation came about as a result of the playwright’s body being found in the old playhouse hours before the show’s opening. Although the police had determined that the cause of death an accident, one obsessive Chautauqua resident with an affinity for local history and conspiracy theories is convinced that it was murder. Along with many (often far-fetched) theories, he fears that whoever killed the playwright may strike again in the interest of stopping the show from making it to the stage. He enlists your help to uncover the truth behind the playwright’s death and bring the culprit(s) to justice.

WHAT'S IN THE BOX?

Each box set purchase will provide you with three boxes (or "Acts"). This means that every 3 weeks, you'll be receiving more physical items such as fictional clues, suspects, witness statements, and more. You'll use these clues to help you reach the end of the story and solve the murder mystery!  If you need help or hints, your box has an email help desk to support your investigation!

HOW MUCH IT IS IT?

The box set is $90 - shipping and all fees included!    This means each box is only $30, which is cheaper than most weekly date nights!   This box set also makes a great gift.

HOW DO I PLAY?

When you place your order you'll need to provide your current mailing address and email address.  First, you'll want to become acquainted with the box contents. Read the objective that comes with each box and the narrative carefully, then look over the included documents and other physical items. You can solve the mystery on your own, but we encourage you to work together with family or friends! Use your detective skills to verify your hunches and breakdown suspects' whereabouts and motives. You can even get creative and put together your very own crime board to keep everything together. 

 

We'd love you see how you're playing! Tag us in a post #gretnamysteryfiles on Facebook and Instagram. When posting, please do not spoil the clues/ending for others!
