Foul Play Cafe is an interactive mystery dinner theater. Our shows are a great way to spend a night out with friends or celebrate a special occasion. We serve up an entertaining and fun filled comedic mystery and a four-course dinner while you play detective and decide whodunit for a chance to be our super sleuth at the end of the evening.

Our shows consist of four (and occasionally 5) 10-30 minute acts with courses served at intermissions. Full show and dinner takes about 2.5 hours. They are performed "environmentally" - that is the action is occurring throughout the room and not on a stage. Audience participation is encouraged but not required.

Shows are offered year round, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 PM. Shows and menu change every three months. Our shows are fairly intimate most nights, with us playing for groups of 15-60 guests.

Very entertaining and funny. First time ever to do a mystery murder dinner show. It was interactive . The the actors and actresses were also serving us. They stayed in their character. Food was alright. They were all so friendly and entertaining. Too bad my hubby and I guessed wrong. The only thing is that they should make their voices... More

Me and my better half have been to at least a half dozen shows and it never gets old. We went early for Valentine's Day. A new show every few months with new characters and always great excitement and fun. Yet again we had a great time! Amazing place to go for date night, birthday, anniversary, or just a night...

This was a marvelous evening and a satisfying dinner. Would suggest better speaking voice projection for actors given the unusual space in which they are working. The night we were there the cast seemed very well balanced even with difficulty understanding some of the dialog (projection). Would come again in a heartbeat!! Keep it going; for ABQ its a unique...
