Hosting an Agatha Christie Style Murder Mystery Party

December 01, 2023

Agatha Christie, the undisputed queen of mystery, has captivated us for decades with her ingenious plots and memorable characters. If you’re a fan dreaming of hosting a murder mystery party that mirrors the suspense and intrigue of Agatha Christie’s ‘A Haunting in Venice’, available for viewing on Hulu now, you’re in for a thrilling adventure. Let’s explore how you can bring the charm and mystery of Christie’s world to life in your own home.

Crafting the Perfect Christie-esque Atmosphere

The first step to hosting an Agatha Christie-style party is setting the scene. Think of the elegance and mystery that pervade her stories. Decorate your space to reflect the time period of her novels – the 1920s and 1930s are particularly evocative. Use vintage decorations, dim lighting, and maybe even some jazz music in the background to set the tone.

Inviting Your Cast of Characters

Every Christie novel features a cast of intriguing characters, each with their own secrets and motives. Invite your guests to dress up as classic Christie archetypes – the dapper detective, the mysterious foreigner, the aristocratic lady, or the shrewd maid, to name a few. Encourage them to fully embrace their characters for the evening.

Weaving a Web of Mystery

The plot is the heart of any Christie mystery. While crafting your own plot with as many twists and turns as a Christie novel can be daunting, this is where The Murder Mystery Company comes in.

We handle the plot, clues, and even provide professional actors to guide the storyline, ensuring your party is as gripping as the plot of ‘A Haunting in Venice’.

Playing the Sleuthing Game

As your guests arrive, immerse them in the mystery. Hand out notepads, assign tasks to your teammates, and let your guests interact to unravel the story. The thrill of an Agatha Christie mystery lies in piecing together the puzzle, so make sure your guests have all they need to play detective.

The Reveal

No murder mystery is complete without the big reveal. This is the climax of the evening, where the murderer is unveiled and the plot’s intricacies are explained. With The Murder Mystery Company at the helm, you can be sure of a reveal that’s as satisfying and shocking as any Agatha Christie denouement.
