Saturday, October 24, The Bear, 7pm for 7.30pm: Back by popular demand is a firm festival favourite – our deliciously, delectable murder mystery evening.
This year Little Chico Productions invites you to ‘Die School Reunion’ – where not everyone on the guest list makes it to registration.
Welcome to the reunion of one of Oxfordshire’s finest and best-known scholarly establishments – the Kennybunkport International High School.
It’s been 15 years since the students last got together, so class president Juan Bumper has arranged a glitzy gathering to celebrate at The Bear Hotel, Wantage, on Saturday, October 24.
Top of the guest list are Juan’s identical twin brother Jamal; prom queen Grace Wondermount; her (now ex) husband, the football captain Jacques Jacks; their ‘arty’ friend Pippa Middletown and the ‘geeky’ Dwight Humplechook.
What starts off as a lavish three-course meal, quickly turns sour in a dramatic turn of murderous events. Soon everyone gets their claws into each other and their teeth into a meaty past.
Come witness this ravishing spread of hot passions, juicy secrets and dark deeds.
