The Morpeth Arms

    What a brilliant evening! So great to spending an evening doing something so interactive and different. Loved interviewing the actors and working it all out! Although we didn't get it right!!! Would highly recommend. Lovely venue too!

    Whilst the acting was great fun (though not immediately obvious from S that it was 70s based) the underlying details of the night being mostly paper based with very short interview periods was a bit dull really and without enough information really to decide who the murderer was. Even after we found out it really wasn’t clear. Too much to read. No fun puzzles. I don’t think we were stupid? It should be hard but when solution is revealed you should realise how you could have “got “ it. I would not recommend this one

    Dear Clare, We're so sorry that you didn't enjoy the show as much as we'd hoped. We'd love to chat more about this with you - as we always take our feedback extremely seriously. Especially on the puzzle aspect - with shredded documents, morse code and a coded message we upped our puzzles for this show. We'd also be happy to chat through how you can solve the show - as this is something that always enjoy doing! Do reach out to us at playdeadlondon@aol.com :-) Many thanks, PDL x
