It was 30 years ago today (August 25, 1990) that The Mystery Shop performed The Spirit of Things for the first time! The client was the Aurora YMCA. Roger Rueff is the playwright and the current director is Mike Speller.
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. So why is he still having nightmares? His wife Joyce seeks the help of Madame Zelda, a mystic whom Joyce met at a shopping mall. Can Madame Zelda and her silent, mysterious assistant Barkoosh bring Richard back from the spirit world?
The Spirit of Things is one of several Murder In Three Acts scripts .
The Mystery Shop’s Murder 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.
