©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party The Host is a Time Traveller (maybe a Galifrean Time Lord, H G Wells Traveller or just a historian from the future) who invites (collects) four couples to a dinner party Sometimes it is set in the period of one of the guests where the table is laid, and food served in the manner of that time, sometimes it is from the hosts own time, sometimes employing a famous chef, e.g. Auguste Escoffier or sometimes in a battle mess. Each guest is given an LFD (Lingua Franca Device) which allows the guests to communicate as if they all spoke English. On their departure, all guests are offered a digestif which also contains a drug that erases the short term memory and induces sleep allowing for their return to their own time.
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party The guests are collected, assembled and introduced at the start of the evening. Some may already be a couple, others introduced as potential partners but all should be controversial. Examples include: Genghis Kahn & Catherine the Great John F Kennedy & Marilyn Monroe Horatio Nelson & Emma Hamilton Mahatma Ghandi & Cleopatra For the purposes of maintaining the time line (and avoiding possible court action) none of the guests are alive presently. During dinner the Host may steer the conversation as his/her whim takes them.
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party Each guest is played by a method actor who is given a week to research their character (with the aid of a provided expert) and must put forward the point of view of their character as best they can and convince the other dinner companions to see their point of view in is as calm and polite a manner as possible. Beheadings and poisonings are not considered polite but threats of invasion are optional. Although the show would be recorded live (then edited down to one hour) each actor will have an earpiece [nominally the LFD] and can receive information from backstage experts should they get out of their depth so if Lord Nelson were asked his preferred tactic for approaching a single French frigate (and the actor had not done his research) a believable answer could be provided.
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party The guest list can change each programme or be retained for a series with the dinner being set in each of the guests home time, alternatively there can be a new set of guests each programme with one guest (or couple) returning for the next programme. Because the programme is intended as entertainment, while effort should be made to also make it informative, occasional diversions into fantasy my also be an option. Special events such as Murder Dinners can be created where the computer simulates characters from fiction (for example Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, Poirot, Foyle, Charlie Chan, Jacques Clouseau and Miss Marple) are assembled to discuss / solve either a fictional or real set of murders. An episode where the actors are being fed incorrect information via the ear pieces ( by Ant and Dec say) could also be considered entertaining.
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party At the beginning of the evening, each diner is given word menu, a list of six phrases that they have to work into the conversation. Each time a phrase is worked into a conversation, and not recognised by another guest as being innocuous, the speaker gets a point. Phrases would be strange but workable such as: Red Banana Flan Black Tulip Shop St. Valentine was misunderstood Mark Twains hat 34 th Street parade Using more than one phrase in a single sentence multiplies the score, e.g. I once bought a red banana flan from a Black Tulip Shop located in that 34 th Street parade. would score 3 (one for each phrase) x 3 (number in the sentence) = 9. These points would aggregate to award that guest the right to ask THE TRUTH QUESTION (although the chance of slipping that through unnoticed would be astronomical).
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party The winner of the party game can choose to ask one Guest a question which must (in character) be answered as truthfully as possible. As the public (or studio audience) will be asked to vote for the guest or couple they most want to be re-invited, this provides a chance for the questioner to discredit the opposition. The question to (for example) Catherine the Great might be How deeply would you rate your love of horses? or to Queen Cleopatra Hows your sister?
©2013 BuzzmarK Entertainment The Time Travelers Dinner Party Once the guests have been returned, the Time Traveller asks the computer (which has been monitoring all conversations) have any of the characters been swayed by the arguments of their dinner companions in any way that may have influenced history had they been able to retain a memory of the event. A computer simulation quickly predicts the roll out of history as it might have been.
