What if you suddenly found yourself in the middle of a crime scene? What if you were told the culprit was still in the room? What if the culprit was sitting right next to you … and you had no idea? And what if all this happened during dinner?

At the Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Show, you'll tackle a challenging crime while you enjoy a delicious dinner at the Bull. Just beware! The criminal is lurking somewhere in the room, and you may find yourself as a Prime Suspect before you know it! There's fun afoot all night as the Bull & Thistle presents a highly interactive comedy/murder mystery show starring a premier theatre troupe from Nashville. Dinner guests will be involved every step of the way as you evaluate clues, listen to interrogations and piece the puzzle together to solve the crime!
