Travels with my Aunt

Murder Mysteries

Last Saturday evening we were at Pizza Express providing the entertainment for a hen night. Joanna runs a murder mystery company- Play Dead - and we often perform together. As well as being enjoyable, it gives us opportunities to dress up in vintage and glamorous outfits from Victorian ladies and suffragettes, through 1920's flappers and 1950's belles to modern Bond girls. We also get to travel to interesting places including stately homes and grand hotels. The pictures shown are from Death of a Diva, which we performed on Saturday. It is set around the glamorous Hollywood of the 1940's with starlets behaving badly. It certainly gets the adrenaline going as it requires a lot of improvisation but it is worth it at the end when you know that everyone has had a good night joining in the fun. For pictures of the hen night at Pizza Express and other recent performances, check out Play Dead's Facebook page here. Aunty Jo has been collecting costumes from different eras for many years and gets some evening dresses from TK Maxx and many items from charity shops and vintage fairs, such as the Fashion Souk for details see their Facebook page here.
