Laura Elmes Productions presents a Fat Rascal Theatre production

Waiter, There's a Murder in my Soup!

The year is 1946.

It is the grand opening night of a performance by venerated prima donna the Marchioness du Jour.

Socialites, dignitaries and cultural bigwigs from around the world have flocked to hear her sing. But all is not as it seems… When a chilling murder is discovered on the hat rack, the lavish soiree quickly becomes a crime scene.

Over the course (3 courses) of dinner, renowned detective Susan Gusset and her fellow diners must race against time to unmask a killer before coffee is served.

Don your finest 1940s glad rags and join Detective Susan Gusset for a 3 course meal and a healthy serving of crime! Accompanied by Live Music!
