Please Help - Going out of my mind-change characters again!

Postby jackieb » October 31st, 2007, 7:48 am

:twisted: At the end of my reason.[

I don't know if I'd do this again - it's such hard work at the beginning - people commit and then back out at the last minute! :evil: - - I'm hosting the murder mystery dinner party for the first time next week - - Murder at the 4 deuces spiced - there are 20 guests in total - - I've just heard the one of the males cannot attend but his wife still can (not sure whether I should exclude them both now). He was assigned the part of -
U.S. Congressman Darrin Toosteal - and his partner Jackie O was assigned to the part of Mary Toosteal. I noticed that neither of them are 'main characters' but then read his part and he has something to add at the beginning. Am I better excluding both of them or could the 'wife' attend on her own? or (god forbid) should I look to re assign (again) the other characters?

If I were you, I would let Mary attend, as it will be great for her character to be there.

I would ask the person playing Jack Guiseppi, to switch to the character of the Congressman. The Congressman has a much better character and Guilda Guiseppi knows all of her hubby's info and can act in his place if he is not there.

Inconsiderate guests are the bane of any hostess. This is why I do stress to make sure you have committed rsvp's before assigning characters. It is also important to assign the main characters to the most reliable of your guests. Unfortunately, even after this, you can get last minute drop outs. Fortunately for you, you have 4 days. That gives you time to fix this.

Already have that - so still stuck!

Thanks for this but unfortunately I already took out Jack Guiseppi ( I only had 8 guys and 10 girls) - so now I'm down to 7 male characters which are:

Don Wannabe
Capo "Toto" Tequila
Don "Big Jim" Ravioli
Inspector Neville "The Nose" Nutella
Al Capone
Rhett Bumbler
Sly Sleaze
Mayor "Big Bill" Bumpkin (being played by the murdered guy - Don Big Jim Ravioli).

Should I remove one of the above and replace with The Congressman? or just leave it that the wife only attends? (I'd be afraid of upsetting people as the person playing the wife is not well known to the other guests but old friend of mine)

I think I would switch the Sly Sleaze character out, if possible. If not, just leave Darrin out of things.
