  • Friday 25th January - 'Back to the 80's'

    The Plot

    The 80’s gave us so much...Saved by the Bell, Top Gun, Goonies, Bon Jovi and Die Hard. It’s 1989 and you are invited to THE New Years Eve party to end all parties.

    Daniel and Ali seem to be the perfect couple and have invited friends and family to this celebration, but no one is that perfect and will everyone at the party still be alive by the end or is there a Lethal Weapon in the room.

    Fancy dress is not obligatory but if you want to dress up the all is good with us, so will you be Robocop? Ferris Bueller? Madonna? The Ghostbusters? The list is endless. We got away with a lot in the 80’s but will someone get away with murder?

  • Friday 22nd February - 'Circus of Murder'

    The Plot

    Roll up, roll up and come and meet those wonderful performer types. Judge Fooks has been obsessed with the Circus since he was a child and has finally got the chance to meet famous mmcircus owner Mr Brockman and his troop. He has thrown a gathering for them but what trouble will find its way to the dinner in their honour? What tensions run deep with these circus performers and will Mr Brockman still have a business when the evening is through?

  • Friday 28th June - 'Lifes' a Beach and then you Die!'

    The Plot

    Who doesn’t like the idea of a good engagement? The happy couple have invited their friends and family to their Hawaii themed engagement party. It is fitting as they met whilst on a surfing lesson in Hawaii 5 years ago. Not everyone is a fan of these two getting engaged so the evening is not likely to end up happily ever after.

    So break out your board shorts, your grass skirts, dust off your sunglasses, find a Hawaiian shirt that would make Magnum P.I. jealous and lets have a party.
