Alright, so I'm writing this script for a dinner theatre and am completely lost. Characters: Lars Van Rooijen Aletta Van Rooijen - Lars Wife Casper Van Rooijen - Lars & Aletta's son Daphny Van Rooijen - Lars & Aletta's Daughter Dirk Van Rooijen - Out casted son Sebastiaan - Casper's Friend Jan - Daphny's Boyfriend Nico - Detective Hendrika, Bas, Igor - Main servants It starts with the main characters greeting guests and making small talk. The man of the house, Lars, is not there when guests arrive and his wife Aletta gives a lousy explanation for where he is. She gets a note shortly after the guests arrive from "the murderer" informing her that her husband is dead and if she doesn't play it cool her family will be joining him. They begin dinner and a scream is heard, a servant informs Aletta that a maid had just been scared by a spider and to disregard the scream. Aletta suddenly becomes very awkward and excuses herself from the guests, returning a moment later with traces of blood on her attire. As the night progresses her outcast son Dirk barges in on the dinner party causing a rude interuption. What I would like to do is make the characters slowly keep vanishing and I would like the audience to believe Dirk is responsible for the murders. Nico the detective must be called in to "solve the mystery" at one point. There will be tension between Dirk and Jan and I want it to appear that Dirk killed him first. Any suggestions on how to achieve these goals? Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated.
