How to Host a Murder - Hens Night for Hearing Impaired Girls

On Sat Jan 29th 2005, history was made at the Lighthouse Restaurant Parramatta. A group of hearing impaired girls played Host a murder to celebrate a hen’s night.

How this came about is rather coincidental since Peter Eedy the manager of How to Host A Murder has been facilitating Host a Murder Hens Nights for 16 hears. But what makes Peter unique is that 30 years ago he worked in a factory with a man who was hearing and speech impaired. He learned to use sign language and can communicate with hearing impaired people.

“I was flabbergasted when I received the email asking me was it possible. At first, I dismissed the idea then the more I thought about the logistics the more I felt it was quite possible.

“I made an appointment with Melissa and Steven Ballarino and visited them and their beautiful 2 year old son at Canly. It's where Steven builds kitchens and sells them. He specialises in renovating the interior of caravans and is a superb cabinetmaker.

“On meeting with them, I realised how easy it would be for me to facilitate a host a murder game.”

The game is played over dinner with numbers from 10 to 300. Peter Eedy holds the world record for Host a Murder with 280 people at one setting.

This year is the 20th anniversary for Host A Murder since the game was first hosted in the world market in 1985. Since then there has been 15 different scenarios, the latest on is the Maiming of The Shrew, a brilliant take off on Shakespeare.

The one that the girls played on the night was ‘BBQ With The Vampire’

How does it work, you ask? After looking up Host A Murder on the Internet you choose one of the 6 themes then we send you out the character and the girls will dress up accordingly. Upon arrival a print out of a tape recording that the fictitious Host who invited them all has been murdered is given to them.

After the girls have introduced themselves to one another in their character. The game begins with questions, accusations and reading. Secret clues are given out as they attempt to find out who among them is the murderer.

Playing Host A Murder gives hearing-impaired people an opportunity to go out and have fun in a way they may have never experienced before. I am hoping that word gets around that we have this unique service for them.
