Sign up at the library to play one of the parts in this murder mystery. Here is the plot as outlined in this letter: June 19, 1881 My Dearest Friends, In my tireless attempts to rid the town of Roadkill of the villainous scum that is corrupting our citizens, I take pride in announcing the capture of the Malevolent Seven-a dastardly conspiracy of criminals that has secretly victimized our fair territory for far too many years. To celebrate this landmark moment in law enforcement, I have erected eight gallows on Main Street: seven for the execution of this thieving, murderous band, and one for good luck. The execution will take place at midnight on the second of July, to "kick off" festivities for the Fourth of July weekend. As a crowd is expected, I've reserved prime seating for you, my most honored guests and dear friends. You shall be served a sumptuous meal in my home prior to our thrilling main event, which will begin with the hanging of the mysterious masked horseman who masterminded the Seven's unsavory crimes. So, leave your affairs in order, and come join me in this triumphant celebration. The honor of your presence is required. Sincerely, Waylon Payne The characters are Butch Chastity, P'elvis Swagarin, Helena Handcart, Chief Breaking Wind, Elvira-Lynn Fekshin, Wyatt Hertz, Dee Adela Muerte, and Elias Truist-Heath. Role playbooks for each character are provided. Play three rounds and then guess which of the suspects is guilty. The real guilty party will then be revealed. Costumes are suggested but not required. More details are at the library.
