The sixteenth Master Mystery Production, Femme Fatales, reunited us with our first ever clients–The Red Hat Ladies of Bakersfield–for an interactive murder mystery inspired by the killer world of couture fashion.
The magazines thought she was drop dead gorgeous. Until she dropped dead. Fashion model, Willow, was the at the peak of her career, booking high fashion editorials for Femme Fatales magazine and becoming the face of Carmine Couture. Backstage at one of Carmen Carmine’s intimate salon fashion shows, Willow is found strangled to death. Now several years after her passing, Carmine Couture is holding another salon fashion show in honor of the model and the charity she founded for breast cancer research. But the invited guests tonight remember Willow all too well as one of them ended her promising career prematurely. But who in the killer world of couture wanted her dead? The truth will out as a group of femme fatales gather to pore over the evidence, learning exactly why a picture’s worth a thousand words. Because in one of them, a deadly secret is unveiled.
Body Count: 1 offstage
Mechanics: Trunk show where audiences study a series of fashion editorials, backstage photos, and even Post-It notes to uncover the truth. Easily adaptable into an at-home version.
