BOTH IN PERSON AND ONLINE ARE COMING!
The story of Play Dead London started almost by accident when our creator and Artistic Director, Emma Crocombe, conceived the idea of first murder mystery event as a fundraiser for an upcoming trip to Bangalore to work with Limited Resources Teacher Training.
Over the next three months, little did she know that she would be creating an unforgettable murder mystery company with her talented friends. On Saturday 28th April 2018 - Play Dead London was born with their first murder mystery ‘Murder at Big G’s Speakeasy’, Big G actually being the nickname for her dad!
Now we are growing and building on our series of murder mystery events.
In response to COVID-19 we have moved our mysteries to ONLINE! We have LOVED connecting to new audiences and hope that our audiences have enjoyed the changes as much as we have!
