The family patriarch and rich businessman Anthony Westongrove had invited his children to the grand family manor to celebrate his 70th birthday yesterday.

All of the family members arrived at the manor on Friday afternoon, and an extravagant feast was served at 7:00 pm. It promised to be a wonderful evening …

But the birthday celebration came to an unpleasant end when Anthony was rushed to the hospital during the night after falling very ill. Concerned, the entire family stayed at Westongrove Manor and waited for the patriarch to make his return. Today, on Saturday afternoon, Anthony was finally released from the hospital. His unconsciousness turned out to be caused by poisoning. It would appear that one of the guests was after his blood.

Anthony wishes to resolve the matter within the family, which is why everyone who was present has come together again this evening. The question is: What happened yesterday night? Who tried to kill Westongrove?


For 6 – 8 players: 3 female and 5 male roles (). Male roles can be played by women and vice versa (What does that mean?)
