London's Premier Immersive Murder Mystery Company
Play Dead London is an interactive theatrical extravaganza, where the audience play the detectives and solve the murder by digging for clues through watching the interactions between the characters and getting their hands dirty by interviewing the shady suspects themselves.
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.

WEDNESDAYS AND SUNDAYS AT 8PM FROM WEDNESDAY 26TH AUGUST 2020
The Murder Mystery evening was fabulous: brilliantly thought out, creatively developed, professionally delivered and massively entertaining. The structure offered the audience enough opportunities to feel properly involved without it being like some contrived role play. And the whodunnit itself was ingenious!
The murder-mystery was an awesome evening! My team won the prize for getting closest to the solution (although we didn't get every detail), but everyone in the room had loads of fun regardless. I can't wait for the next one!”
The structure worked really well, especially the segments where each table got to question the suspects individually and then feedback to room. The extra clues provided later was a nice touch that added twists and turns and kept the audience engaged. The acting was superb, with each character well defined and avoiding caricature, but still providing the murder mystery tropes that the audience expects!
