April 5-7, 2019

Pack your inner Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple and get away with murder… The Wilburton Inn is a historic 1902 Tudor mansion high on a hill – a perfect setting for an Agatha Christie mystery or a real life game of Clue. Georgette Levis, sister of Tony-award winning playwright, Wendy Wasserstein began the tradition of writing original murder mysteries.  Her daughter Tajlei Levis, an accomplished New York City playwright and lyricist, continues the tradition using the Wilburton’s rich history as backdrop for each year’s original mysteries. Mark your calendar each year for the first week of November and an encore performance in the first week in April. Two night package includes:

  • Friday wine reception. Meet the colorful cast of suspects and your fellow guests. Family innkeeper Melissa leads the festivities and sing-along from 6:30 - 8pm.

  • Discounted $60 tickets to the interactive Murder Mystery Dinner Party on Saturday from 6:30 - 10:00pm.

  • Sunday morning Broadway sing-along.

  • A delicious full country breakfast each morning.

  • Prizes for best sleuthing, most festive costumes and the guest who solves “Whodunnit?”


This year’s saga, THE DANGEROUS DIVORCEE, written by Tajlei Levis, is inspired by Hollywood’s Golden Age movie musicals of the 1930’s made by RKO Pictures. RKO Pictures produced many of our favorite Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musicals, with songs by Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Irving Berlin. RKO owned the Wilburton – and used it as an executive and celebrity retreat - until they sold it to the Levis family in 1987.

Return to the era of Hollywood glamour, in an immersive historical mystery whodunnit with professional actors and audience participation. Guests are invited to dress in 1930s finery, have a screen test, join the cast and crew of the film Dottie is producing. A photographer will be on hand to capture their style. Guests and characters dine together and join forces to solve the mystery.
