Classic Murder Mystery

Five Perfect Murder character actors create an immersive murder mystery event

Perfect Murder’s Classic Murder is an immersive murder mystery event, featuring five professional actors and running for approx 2.5hrs.

A team of five Perfect Murder actors present a humorous, immersive live-action dinner theatre event, during which a fun and intriguing mystery will play out in real-time. Guests will experience an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery first-hand, complete with interactive characters, clues, evidence and a fiendishly clever killer determined to get away with murder! Guests will spend the entire event face-to-face with the suspects as the plot unfolds before your eyes.

Perfect Murder’s very own sleuth and mystery writer Miss Mapletree, will head up the event. With years of experience and a sharp eye for detail, Miss Mapletree acts as host and will ensure you and your guests have an amazing murder mystery experience.


“Miss Mapletree was a tour de force of improvised comedy; hilarious and totally on the ball throughout. Incredible!”

Our Classic Murder Mystery is a fully interactive, live-action murder mystery. There is no stage or boring scripted performance; everything happens in ‘real time’, meaning guests are involved in the murder mystery from start to finish. Our team will be ‘in character’ for the entire event and interact with your guests throughout.

Perfect Murder’s Classic Murder Mystery Event is not a scripted play, nor do we perform scenes ‘between the courses’; Perfect Murder’s Classic Murder Mystery is best described as immersive dinner theatre. If you have ever dreamt of being in an episode of Miss Marple, Poirot or Murder, She Wrote, then this is for you!

The plot, character background, motives and clues all occur in real time throughout the event. Ask the suspects anything and they will respond ‘in character’, we have over twenty years’ experience of creating live-action events at top venues and our team of professional actors are hand-picked by our Creative Director, ensuring we have the best performers available to deliver you a memorable murder mystery event.


“Uniquely humorous and quintessentially English, an event from Perfect Murder is the perfect combination of intrigue and fun.”

How does it work?

Below is an example event, but please note that our events can be held at any venue, at any time of day:


Pre-dinner Drinks, Meet & Greet with the Characters

Cast of Perfect Murder actors join your party and remain with you for the evening. Remaining ‘in character’ at all times, the suspects will begin to reveal the plot as the scene is set. This usually takes place in a separate space such as a bar or drawing room and lasts for approximately 30 minutes.


Dinner with the characters

The suspects join you as you dine, allowing plenty of time for guests to begin to question each suspect about events so far. The murders happen in real time; you never know if the suspect sat at your table may suddenly drop dead…but is anyone keen-eyed enough to spot the killer in action? There are clues, hints and items of evidence presented throughout the event, allowing guests the chance to build a case against the suspect they believe to be the guilty party, but with so many plot twists and red herrings, there is lots to think about.


The Accusation

Guests are given the opportunity to complete their Solution Sheets and put their case against the suspect they believe to be the killer.


The Denouement

The murderer is revealed in the traditional fashion. A classic Agatha Christie-style finale! The suspects are lined up and our skilled Perfect Murder Detective will reveal the reasons behind the murders and finally the identity of the killer. The winning team is announced and prizes awarded.

Where can this be held?

Perfect Murder events can be held in virtually any venue, throughout the UK and Europe. We perform hundreds of events each year in venues as diverse as exclusive-hire country houses, hotels, bars, restaurants and private homes.  We have also performed on trains, aboard boats and at outdoor events and festivals.

Because we work all over the UK and abroad, we are unable to offer assistance with venue-finding.  There are specialist companies that can help you find the perfect venue for your Perfect Murder:
