A murder mystery where George Sweet holding one final party for 14 to 40 guests.
How “The Last Gasp” Works
It is 1899. George Sweet, the 5th Earl of Coddingham, has lead a wicked and dissolute life. His past is finally catching up with him and, eager to keep out of reach of the law, he is planning to flee abroad. Before he goes, he is holding one final party… The Last Gasp.
This Victorian murder mystery runs for about three hours. It works particularly well when run on New Year’s Eve but is fine on other dates, too. Everyone taking part is given a character in the plot. As well as having a murder to investigate, characters will also have their own, secret objectives. Why does the church choir only accept female members? Where is the Earl hiding all his money? Can anyone persuade Captain Ratliffe to do the decent thing? At The Last Gasp, anything can happen – and generally does!
Invited to the Earl’s “Last Gasp” party are all the people to whom his appalling behavior has brought the most grief and heartache: his ex-wives, Florence and Dawn, his present wife, Jojo, his ballet dancer son, William, and his long-suffering friend, Bernard. George is determined to use his party to make up for past mistakes.
People from the Earl’s local village and members of his staff are also here. The local vicar is recruiting new members for the church choir, cavalry officer Captain Ratliffe is breaking a few more women’s hearts, and Jarvis, the Earl’s loyal butler, is making sure no one steals the sherry. The Earl’s plans go slightly awry, however, when the police unexpectedly turn up, hoping to arrest someone for murder. Who do they want to arrest? The Earl of Coddingham….
