About this event

It’s a party! All of your guests have gathered to celebrate your birthday. Everything is going well, the drinks are flowing and all is set for a fun night until one of the guests, Charlie Luck, stands to make an impromptu speech.

Charlie Luck, international jewel thief, is a past associate of the birthday boy/girl. They lived together while overseas and founded an infamous sports club which was basically an excuse to meet, drink and party. Lucky, however, used the club and it’s members to orchestrate an elaborate diamond theft.

Tonight, you and Charlie are meeting again for the first time in years and Charlie has a few words to say. However, other members of that infamous club have also gathered. They heard that Charlie would be in attendance and they have a few scores to settle with him.

Suddenly everything starts to go horribly wrong and when 'Lucky' ends up dead on the floor, your guests get the surprise of their lives and find themselves knee deep in a murder scene! 

Interview the suspects, examine the evidence and discover just why Charlie’s luck has changed.....

This mystery is completely adaptable, we create the plot using your life story. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the thick of the plot, while still having a great and give your guests the surprise of their lives!

It is a portable show. We can present it in virtually any private venue.
