The Ministry of Mundane Mysteries is an improvised mystery experience unfolding over a one-hour phone call. The Ministry’s private investigators delve into audience members’ very own micro mysteries using the investigative power of good conversation.
Created by Outside the March in the first weeks of the pandemic, this phone-based project has gone on to be one of Outside the March’s most successful to date, solving thousands of cases for ages 4-99 (literally) in 230+ cities worldwide, on every continent.
Originally created to provide connection for audience members isolating during the pandemic, its one-on-one accessibility has made it popular with audiences of all kinds. It has been performed and tailored for d/Deaf and Blind audience members, families, seniors, audiences with intellectual disabilities and for many others with a range of access needs, small and large. It was also created to provide meaningful employment for artists, passing on 100% of ticket sales to its 25+ performers. Over two years it’s put hundreds of thousands of dollars into artists’ hands at a challenging time.
