The Murder Room Dinner


On Friday, May 13th at 6:00pm, the executive chef of The Roycroft Inn has created another spectacular themed dinner in honor of Aurora Players opening night of “The Murder Room” by Jack Sharkey.


The play is set in jolly ole England and has been described as a cross between Agatha Christie, Abbott & Costello and The Pink Panther! Poor Mavis Hollister is practically a newlywed stuck in an unhappy marriage to the much older and ...wealthy Edgar Hollister. What’s a woman to do? Three shots fired and down he goes! She is seemingly free now to live off his money…or is she?! After stashing the body in “the murder room”, she learns the gun was only a target pistol loaded with blanks and now the body is missing! With the unwanted help of a constable, a nosy housemaid, a police inspector, a dim-witted daughter and her millionaire American fiancé, they all try to solve the mystery of the missing Edgar! This comedy-mystery-farce is complete with secret passages and hidden compartments that will have you laughing and guessing till the very end!


To help set the stage for this British comedy, a special “English” themed dinner has been planned that will start off with a pickled beet and watercress salad with balsamic vinaigrette, followed by a main course of “Fish & Chips” (beer battered Atlantic cod served with steak fries and creamy cole slaw) And for dessert an Apple Rhubarb Crisp with whipped cream plus Coffee, Tea or Soft Drink. This special dinner menu is being offered for only $20.00 per person.***


Following dinner we’ll move down the street two blocks to the Roycroft Pavilion inside Hamlin Park to see the 8:00 pm opening night performance!


Dinner seating is limited, so please make a reservation early by calling The Roycroft Inn directly at 652-5552 and asking for the Aurora Players Themed Dinner Event. Reservations are required before May 11th, 2011. ***
