What's the Mystery Here?
Celebrity chef Raymond Myers has returned to his home town to open 'Just Desserts' the third of his themed restaurants. Staff and guests are on-hand for the opening:-
Raymond's wife Charlotte Myers
Sarah Riley waitress, brought-in from another part of the chain
Food critic Ian Worthington
Etienne Blanc the head chef of Just Desserts
Joanne Seymour the Siddlington Vicar
The Mayor of Siddlington, Graham Rossiter
Juliet Davenport a wealthy local resident
Local resident Gary Stone, winner of a raffle for a place on the top table.
Raymond is well-known for his abrasive personality and is not the only volatile temperament in the company, and, after all, this is a murder mystery. Suffice it to say, the evening does not run smoothly. The audience are left to solve the resulting whodunnit - with a Narrator on hand to guide them through the proceedings.
