The Ministry of Mundane Mysteries

Sparking Connections through Telephonic Investigation

Finding yourself with a little time on your hands?

Missing the uplift of live arts and culture?

Is there a friend, a relative or a kid in your life who could use a daily dose of adventure?

The meticulous mavericks at The Ministry of Mundane Mysteries have got you covered. Book a personalized, weeklong subscription to this auditory adventure for yourself or a loved one. This customized improvised narrative experience unfolds over a week’s worth of short daily phone calls, as our intrepid stable of private investigators delve into your very own micro mystery using the investigative power of good conversation.

Some of the Ministry’s Departments include: 

  • A Top-Notch Lost & Found Division for Misplaced Keepsakes 
  • An Executive ThinkTank devoted to unpacking Striking Coincidences
  • The Tactical Search and Repair Unit for Missed Connections 
  • A Well-Kept Secret Task Force for monitoring Paranormal Activity  

At this moment of uncertainty, leave some of the pondering to the professionals as we work with you to untangle meaning from meaninglessness in the mundane.

This experience is designed to be customizeable for clients of any age. For young mystery-seekers 12 and under, we recommend teaming up with a parent or guardian (at no extra charge).

No matter who you are, the Ministry will take your case for a Connection Fee of $35.

*100% of the funds collected will go directly to employ theatre artists who have recently lost income due to the COVID-19 Crisis, and now coincidently just so happen to work for the Ministry.

Special $25 Connection Fee available for those who have recently experienced financial hardship in connection with COVID-19. 

Give the Gift of Conversation – to a friend, or a friend you haven’t met!

Want to gift this auditory adventure to a stranger? The Ministry is also pleased to offer a “Pay it Forward” service that allows clients to pre-purchase the service for other clients-in-need. Every “Pay it Forward” donation of $35 will facilitate a free subscription for someone dealing with financial instability.
