We are Playing Dead-
dying to entertain you!
We know how thrilling a murder mystery event can be: at its best it’s a unique form of entertainment that creates a world in which everyone can participate to whatever degree they feel comfortable, often surprising themselves by their own depth of involvement. An essential ingredient is a great story packed with twists, surprises and a few gory murders to boot! At the core of a great event is a skilled team who knows how to get the best from each other and their guests - this is what Playing Dead provides. We have all worked for some of the best companies, and are building on this experience to bring our skills to a special and engaging mix of drama, theatre, interaction, humour and suspense in order to be the very best that the genre can offer.
A DRAMATIC TWIST!
Our events are so much more: enjoying sleuthing with your party and working with others on the same quest, sharing suspicions with fellow guests, devising a new solution as a red herring is revealed, laughing together over the antics of an eccentric suspect, gasping together at the grisly death of character you were dining with moments before, even learning the Charleston in a 1920’s plot, or singing We’ll meet Again in a wartime thriller.
