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.

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...

I loved the show, it was so funny. The actors and actresses did a great job. The accents used were awesome and the mystery was tricky to solve. Loved the songs too!

We had a great time. It was so much fun interacting with the actors as they stayed in character! We have already made plans to attend the show that starts in December.

Awesome time to spend with a loved one, family, even a first date too, or a night out with friends. The personnel that wait on the customers are also the cast, during the evening they interact with you, making it a fun time. Dinner is in a 4 course. Delicious food. Fun time to spend on a Saturday. A must... More

We loved the play, very well done and funny. Participation with the actors/servers was cool… They stayed in character all evening. The food was delicious and served at perfect intervals. We will definitely recommend Foul Play Cafe to others.

So much good stuff to say, where to start. Great acting, the actors stay in character to whole time. I couldn't stop laughing. It's a very personal experience as the actors engage with you. Then there's the food, so good, I got the ribs. They were so tender. My friend got the chicken it was also good. Guessing the murder... More
