A Dinner to Die for - Christmas Party @ Retreat Hotel - Brunswick


Not molecular gastronomy, but a wickedly funny Musical, Murder Mystery Dinner and the ideal Christmas party. It's Christmas Eve 1928, Lord Quinten Daventry hosts his annual party bash with all the usual festive trimmings. Rumour in social circles is that he will announce his engagement to Miss Fanny. Agatha Christie in spirit – all cut glass accents, pearls, flapper dresses, army outfits and monocles – with lashings of sexual innuendo and double entendres. The core cast include the delightfully flighty Miss Fanny, besotted and oblivious to the designs on her fortune. Uncle Bernie, former army colonel, a blustering, big-bellied chauvinist. The pièce de résistance has to be Nanny Maude, Quinten’s childhood Nanny. Scottish down to her brown boots, this is one of the best drag acts since Mrs Doubtfire. Party guests are allocated a role for the night and encouraged, but not required, to indulge their inner artiste by dressing and behaving in character. They play the game as detective for the night whilst mingling over dinner. Subplots emerge and the evening begins to gather pace and spices up into a hilarious romp peppered with music, murder, mysteries, disembodied limbs and suitably hysterical screams. As shows go this is interactive entertainment at its best!
