The Paris We Should Know


“You list our assets so well, mademoiselle.  It is the Paris of the guidebooks, is it not?   But there is so much more to this city.  The way the cigarette smoke and Chanel No. 5 mingle in the atmosphere of the sidewalk café.  The soft glow of the lamps on the Avenue des Champs-Elysees at night.  The artists capturing the curves and contours of a beautiful woman in every medium imaginable.  That is the Paris you should know.”

Edgar Giraud’s words to a young American girl visiting Paris for the first time echo in our hearts as we prepare for the 12th Master Mystery Production.


Paris, 1924.  In the neighborhood of Montparnasse, artists, writers, and rebellious socialites lived la vie boheme in their studios and salons on the left bank of the Seine.  The most notorious of the bohemians was Chantal, the infamous “Madame Mustache.”  A liberated woman and eccentric character, Chantal has chosen to paint a mustache on her face with makeup so as not to be judged by her beauty alone.  Flitting from art to art (and lover to lover), she has lately been crafting her magnum opus of her highly fictionalized life story entitled Bury Me in Paris.  But someone in her fabulous inner circle has not found this story quite as charming and has taken to threatening Chantal’s life.  Who wants to bury her in Paris for good?  Join a cast of chic and suspicious artists as they share gossip, secrets, and passions in the magic of 1920’s Paris and help them solve a mystery that might make living the bohemian life a very difficult occupation.


Bury Me in Paris is the third collaboration between Master Mystery Productions and My Enchanted Cottage and Tea Room, after Goodbye Hollywood in 2015 and The Last Garden Party in 2016.  This time, we will sweep you into the bohemian wonderland of 1920’s Paris and experience the art, culture, drama, and intrigue on the Left Bank.  In the era of the city that once hosted Picasso, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Guggenheim, we will turn the beautiful Enchanted Garden dining space at My Enchanted Cottage into an outdoor art gallery filled with original art, sparkling suspects, and a murder most fabulous.


Our latest interactive mystery will feature an art show of original paintings by local artist, Marcela Everitt, tea and treats provided by My Enchanted Cottage, live jazz, a wine and beer bar, an amazing setting, and a story starring the most dazzling bohemians in all of Paris.  It’s our largest cast yet–half newbies and half veterans of Master Mystery Productions.  We welcome them all as they share gossip, trade insults, and uncover the secrets of Montparnasse for our audiences to use in their solutions.  Who’s threatening Madame Mustache?  And why?  What does her biography have to do with the swirling storm clouds gathering over them all?  And who will live to tell their tale?
