Susan Haley

Published by Haley Productions

Large Mixed Cast
A very funny interactive Murder Mystery game perfect for Parties and Fundraisers

It's 1857 in New Orleans

The Mystick Krewe of Cochon are having an end of Mardi Gras Ball hosted by Governor Fayette Warren and his wife Raylene

The surprise guests include several Pirates (in disguise) searching for a treasure

A Dead Man's Chest, if you will

NOTE: The Mardi Gras Ball is optional - it can be any sort of Gala event or Fancy Dress Party - but it's best served with a Pirate twist


Governor Fayette Warren
The obsessive compulsive governor of New Orleans

Raylene Warren
The Governor's wife with big plans for their hoped for monetary windfall

Lilly Laveau
The Governor's new aide, a fiery Cajun woman with a deep and abiding love of knives

Cutler Sinslayer
A magistrate with his own personal version of law and order against criminals, pirates and other malfeasants

Sookie Sinslayer
Cutler's nervous wife who has a plan to dramatically change her life

Annabelle Greatlush
A doddering, blundering spinster and reluctant carer of the infirm and elderly

Jack Black
He says he's an actor from the Theater of the Vampires here in New Orleans but he's really the nefarious pirate Jack Blackbird

Arturo Diablo
Lilly's seafaring beau who has just returned from the Orient


Remember, EVERYONE will be actively involved in this mystery because it will be their job to solve the case and because you'll be encouraging them to come in costume and in character

Use any or all of these secondary suspects if you have "extra" cast members you want to use

Or if you have some guests who want to take on a character but not take on the full responsibility of a primary suspect

Give them their secondary suspect instructions (included) and let them run with it

During the mystery it will be the secondary suspects' "job" to act as general support for the primary suspects

They'll roam the room "gossiping" about the goings-on and quieting the audience down during a main action as well as answering questions, bring primary suspects to tables for questioning and making sure your guests have seen the physical clues that have so far been revealed


Caleb (male) or Callie (female) Roscoe
A very eccentric, very superstitious Cajun local who wrestles alligators, charms snakes and claims to be psychic. Thinks that s/he and Annabelle are best friends. Annabelle would strongly disagree

Malvina Grunch
A wannabe actress who falls head over heels for Jack once he introduces himself as an actor

Elton Coffin
The local undertaker, formerly betrothed to Raylene and still bitter she broke off their engagement to marry Fayette

Harlan (male) or Harlene (female) Peachtree
Cutler's very efficient secretary who writes everything down no matter how seemingly insignificant

Delmar Dubbs
Sookie's brother, dumb wannabe pirate who falls madly in love with Lilly and her knives
