It’s December 24th 1933 and tonight is the traditional Christmas Eve party which has been hosted by the Asquith-Jones family of Cerne Abbas, Dorset for at least three generations. It’s a vitally important event for the family as it is the one occasion every year that the Asquith-Jones use to demonstrate how much taste, sophistication and most importantly money they have in comparison to the St John-Smythe family. Plus they get to show the St John-Smythe family how to throw a party before the St John-Smythe’s New Year’s Eve party.
So far everything hasn’t proceeded exactly as planned. The radio forecast predicted heavy snow and so everyone arrived a day early and had to stay overnight, instead of arriving today. It has thrown Cook into a complete whirl. The heavy snow fell as predicted overnight and it now appears that everyone will need to stay for Christmas as well and this news has thrown the rest of the staff into chaos.
Worse than this however is the fact that Theodore St John-Smythe the head of the family had the audacity to be found dead this morning. It’s all very inconvenient.
Ho Ho Ho - Remember 'tis the season to be jolly ………………………
Join the Asquith-Jones, the St John-Smythes and their friends for Christmas Eve and ensure this is a party that will go down in history.
Miss Maypole and the Christmas Pudding Affair is a not-terribly-serious theatre-style larp inspired by classic murder mysteries such as the works of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers. There are 14 characters, with an even mix of male and female characters. It will run as a double-feature with An Ecumenical Matter.
