DEATH BY CHOCOLATE

an interactive murder mystery with chocolate tasting

WELLINGTON SEASON 2009

A chocolate-themed singles night has gone horribly wrong… can you solve WhoDunnit? Interview the suspects, sample the chocolates, solve the crime - it's all up to you. Tickets include a 2+ hour live event, chocolate tasting, plus an online interactive experience.

"Interactive here is almost an understatement" ~ Fringe Review (UK)

How It Works…
Upon purchase of your ticket, you immediately begin your interactive experience. A mini-website gets your skills up to speed as the student detective you're about to embody. Next, you attend the live event: get your detective kit, briefing, and launch straight in the deep end of two hours interrogating 8 suspects, sampling chocolates, swapping notes, and rifling through 9 evidence trays. To complete the live event; submit your findings, share insights at the debrief, and make an accusation on WhoDunnit. But you're not done there… the secret website and authorisation code gain you entry to four weeks worth of new clues, revelations, online discussion, and more. The conclusion is also broadcast here, with full confessions, and all criminals arrested.

"Involving… far too easy to get caught up in the whole drama" ~The Age (Australia)

Winner of "Best Special Event" at Melbourne Fringe Festival 2007.
New Zealand premiere with new plot twists, local cast and exquisite chocolate.
Sold out Edinburgh 2008, Adelaide 2008 (with extended season), and Melbourne 2007.

MEDIA COVERAGE

"Not one of [the actors] lost their character in the face of a barrage of sometimes quite bizarre questions and accusations."

"Strangers start to bond over shared revelations"

"I just spent a good half hour on the website and it is great... [I'm] pretty impressed by the overall value of the ticket price. I am tempted to go again later"
~ Theatreview
