Inside O’Malley’s Liquor Kitchen in Wrigleyville, The Murder Mystery Company blasts the eighties out of the temporal bedrock and dusts off some of the era’s most popular trends, including new wave, neon-clad mod-rockers, big hair, and homicide. In between interrogations, guests dine on breadsticks, salads, main courses from the menu, and desserts dished out by Illinois Nut and Candy. Many participants throw on eighties costumes, though it’s not required, and the sleuth who puzzles out the perpetrator will win a prize. Murder-mystery events will be held Thursdays–Sundays starting April 12. Click here for a schedule of upcoming events.
The Murder Mystery Company
The Murder Mystery Company sends temporary detectives down trails filled with clues, laughs, and imaginary murther most foul. During each crime-riddled event, participants work together to solve a perplexing homicide, combining their interrogative skills, keen eyes, and collections of fake mustaches to crack the case and apprehend the culprit. To further set the scene, The Murder Mystery Company encourages investigators to don costumes according to detailed themes, which range from the gangster-run speakeasies of the nineteen-twenties to the totally boss parties of the nineteen-eighties. The company's troupe of actors tailors the show to a wide range of functions, including team-building exercises, private get-togethers, and children's parties, but definitely excluding any of Professor Plum’s candlestick-filled dinner parties.
