an interactive murder mystery with chocolate tasting


Participate in uncovering a murderer while dining on delicious chocolate delicacies. 'Death By Chocolate' is a performance-based interactive murder mystery installation. With a cast of 10 suspects, the audience aims to solve WhoDunnit. Interview the suspects, sample the chocolates, decode the clues, solve the crime -- it's all up to you!

Take on the role of a final year student at the IMMI HQ School of Detectives. This is your first real life case, and your final major assessment. You will have two hours to complete the "exam"; repeat attendance is available where numbers allow. Details of the crime will be provided on arrival along with a notepad, pen and a selection of chocolate.

Gluten and dairy free options will be accommodated where possible.
Wheelchair friendly.
Adult themes.

With NEW suspects, NEW killer/s, and a LOCAL cast, 'Death By Chocolate' and IMMI HQ are making their Adelaide Fringe debut.
