We all like horsing around. Now, a new murder mystery — played out in Camden Market's former stables — is looking to raise the bar fence.
Horses for Corpses is the latest immersive group game from A Door In A Wall. These top pedigree folk have previously brought us the likes of Played to Death (which featured the murder of a composer) and An Appetite for Murder, in which a chef is murdered (can you see a theme here?).
This promises to be another fantastic group game, stuffed with intrigue, people in trilbies... and horsey puns:
The ad didn't say much: "Investigators wanted. No experience necessary." Some horse trader apparently. You didn’t know much about riding, but you weren’t going to look this gift in the mouth. If only you’d asked a few more questions out of the gate...
The genuinely dark and cobbled setting beneath the streets of Camden is spot on for that film noir/Ascot look that's so hard to come by.
Oh, and the whole setup instantly reminded us of that classic episode of Murder in Successville featuring Chris Kamara:
If Horses for Corpses is on half as good form as that, it'll be worth snapping up tickets.
Horses for Corpses, 5 May-18 June 2017, tickets £32.50 per person. Group sizes must be 3-6 people.
