In the Cards



Audience Input:

None required


Six actors come on stage and are given a playing card at random. One actor receives a "joker" card. Each of the actors then becomes a character attending a murder mystery-like dinner. The host gives each character an opportunity to introduce themselves. Throughout the scene, each character will mysteriously die depending on the card they drew. For instance, if the value of the card is low, an actor should die relatively early in the scene. If the card value is a face card, they should try to die later. Once only two actors remain, the actor who drew the "joker" card reveals how they were able to dispatch the other actors before claiming their last victim, the actor with the highest value card. One by one the actors then reveal their cards to see if they were killed in the proper order.
