The plot: Steve Chandler’s friend Richard Holmes was killed in a tragic accident many years ago. Steve did everything in his power to save his friend, but to no avail.

Can Madame Zelda and her silent, mysterious assistant Barkoosh bring Richard back from the spirit world?

The Spirit of Things

The Spirit of Things is one of several Murder In Three Acts scripts .

The Mystery Shop’s MuSpirit of Things Madame Zeldarder in Three Acts is a real killer. Professional actors perform a scripted play in three acts, incorporating clues to solve the mystery.

After Act 1, the audience begins its investigation. You’re on the case as you question suspects, examine evidence and “buy” insider information (with Mystery Shop Investigation Bucks).

Act II thickens the plot so the audience can continue it pursuit of the murderer. Act III brings a solution – with suspect, motive and method.

There’s plenty of time for group participation – and even more time for fun.
