Jimmy Hayward rules the down-trodden, almost forgotten town of Deadwood. It once thrived and prospered when folks thought gold was in them thar hills. Them thar hills contained nothing but dirt and so the town lost not only its fortune but its fame and its population. Now Deadwood is just an occasional stagecoach stopover for folks moving on to better places. And the Leland Hotel and Saloon is a haven for outlaws (like yourselves) and it houses Madam Iggy’s, the best little whorehouse in the South Dakota. Consider it just another night in the old west, only this time it will more deadly than usual.
YEAR: 1880 – the Old West (OPTION: You can put this in any era you choose.)
THE PLACE: The Leland Hotel and Saloon, Deadwood, Black Hills, South Dakota
She was a fearsome religious zealot who ruled her flock with an iron ruler – until she met Jimmy at a revival meeting she was holding in town. Now she has really taken a fall from grace: She runs the bordello alongside Jimmy as his partner (gotta have a madam after all) – or at least that’s what he tells her. Iggy is in love for the first time in her life – with Winking Willie Woodcuff, a customer.
The bordello’s newest girl. The fellas are all excited to meet her.
Floyd’s wife. She swears she isn’t one of Iggy’s “girls” but we all know better. Floyd is out of town a lot and a girl gets lonely after all. Besides when he is home, he won’t let her have any fun. Kit is in love and it ain’t with her husband.
EVERYONE will be actively involved in this mystery because it will be their job to solve the case and because you’ll be encouraging them to come in costume and in character. Use any or all of these secondary suspects if you have “extra” cast members you want to use or if you have some guests who want to take on a character but not take on the full responsibility of a primary suspect. Give them their secondary suspect instructions (included) and let them run with it.
FOR LARGE GROUP MYSTERIES (75 OR MORE): We suggest you cast your secondary suspects. During the mystery it will be the secondary suspects’ “job” to act as general support for the primary suspects. They’ll roam the room gossiping about the goings-in, quiet the audience down during a main action, answer questions, bring primary suspects to tables for questioning and make sure your guests have seen the physical clues that have been revealed.
