What's the Mystery Here?
There are two versions (both provided in the scenario pack), one cast for 4 women and 3 men, the other for 3 women and 4 men. (In the following description, substitute "Don" for "Donna" and you will get the gist of the change from one version to the other!)
The time is the present.
Donna Canneloni, head of Buena Pasta Pictures has invited an audience of valued movers and shakers of the movie world to attend a party to celebrate the imminent release of a new picture.
In addition to Donna, other notable guests at the dinner include:
Sam Wannital: The director of the new film.
Ivana Wannital: Sam’s wife, an aspiring author.
Rex Bannister: Actor and star of the movie.
Carla di Lucci: Actress and co-star of movie.
Gracie Dullard: PA to Mr Wannital.
Nick Noble: Talented up and coming director.
What should be a cause for celebration quickly descends into chaos as Donna announces that, having just seen the trailer, she is appalled at the film! Accusations fly, tempers rise and finally we have a double murder!
