To access the show you will need to be able to join a Zoom call (the link will be emailed to you before the show) and also view this webpage. We recommend you use a laptop or ipad to access the Zoom call and another device, such as a phone, to view the webpage.
The Zoom call will allow you to follow the actors and watch the story, this webpage will allow you to submit questions to the detective, and guesses for whodunnit!
During the show you will need to be able to watch the Zoom screen while also accessing this webpage. The easiest way to do this is to access the Zoom call on one device, and open this webpage on another.
If you are easily able to open the Zoom call and this webpage on one device, then you do not need a second device.
The show is performed in three acts and at the end you will be given a chance to guess the murderer and the motive.
While the actors are performing you should make note of any clues you hear that might tell you who the murderer is. Between the acts you will be sent to a private room (a breakout room in Zoom) to discuss with your team mates. Here, you will be given clues, and plan questions you might like to ask the characters.
Yes. During the show you will be sent into a breakout room away from the cast to solve the murder. This will be with a small group of other audience members.
Between acts, you will be sent to a breakout room in a team. Unless you specify a team name, this will be a random group.
In order to specify a team, all members of your team should rename themselves with the same team name. For example, if your team name was "The Ward Family", each person accessing the Zoom call, should rename themselves "The Ward Family". You will then be placed into a breakout room only with other users who share this name.

If you are a single household, using one device to access the show, and would rather be in your own room, you can also change your name to a team name. If there is only one user with your team name, you will be placed in a room on your own.
Users who do not have team names (e.g. if your Zoom name is iPad or Jenny Jones- anything which is not obviously a team name) will be placed in a breakout room with other teams.
During the show, you will have the option to ask the characters questions to help you to work out the murderer and motive. To do this, you will need to be able to use your microphone, or the chat feature in Zoom.
