The Storyline

In 1783, the British Government established 19 Crimes Punishable by Transportation. If convicted, the penalty was a one way trip to the penal colony in Australia.

Jump to present day Sykesville, Maryland. This is a quiet town. It is filled with quaint shops, antique stores and clothing boutiques. It recently had the honor of winning the prestigious title "Coolest Town in America." The folks are friendly and quick with a smile.

But they are frustrated with outliers unwilling to follow some simple rules. So, the townsfolk have updated and reinstated the 19 Crimes. Tonight those convicted will enjoy a farewell dinner surrounded by family and friends; for tomorrow they will be banished from Sykesville and shipped out of town.

Unfortunately, a stranger will stumble in during their last meal and die! Oh no! The convicts and guests will be called upon to help solve the crime. They will search for clues, interrogate suspects and solve whodunnit.

The murder mystery is a comedy and will at no time have guests frightened or confused.

Participation Encouraged

This event is an interactive murder mystery game. As a guest, you will be asked to participate as a convict, sleuth or a suspect. Watch out! You could be accused of the crime.

19 Crimes

Tonight's murder mystery storyline is based on a wine created by the Australian winemaker Tony Robinson. Treasury Wine Estates was first established in 1843 in Hunter Valley, Australia and today has an award winning portfolio of more than 70 brands of wine. One of those brands is "19 Crimes" and it was the catalyst for this tale of intrigue written and presented by Whodunnit for hire.
