About

We’ve been putting the clue into conclusion since 2016. Our founders, Mylissa Malley and Sophia Naylor, tired of seeing the same stereotypes in interactive murder mystery games, vowed to create their own where anyone could play any character and enjoy doing so. Their combined 45+ years of show business experience let them know how important it was to workshop their shows to get them right. All of our shows are play tested with real people before they become available for you!

We started with our always popular 1920’s theme, Framed at the Fix, and have since grown to offer three murder mystery themes for adults, plus offerings for kids, or those who don’t want a murder. We also offer customization. Our seasoned writers and actors customize our shows at every level: from the smallest change to a completely tailor-made script. We work with you at every step of the way to make sure the show is perfect. 

We pride ourselves in being a step above the competition, bringing murder and mystery to all over the Bay Area, and beyond. We’ve traveled as far as Temecula to the south, Lake Tahoe to the north and are happy to travel to you. We’ve also performed virtually for teams all over the world - London, Berlin, Bangladesh, and more.

We believe there’s always room for mystery. Except when it comes to pricing. As we hate when we are looking for entertainment and come across additional fees at the very end of the process, the price we quote you is the price you pay. We include everything into the price: service fees, taxes, sound, you name it! 

Sarah Carter joined the team in 2021, bringing with her over 15 years of creative writing and content creation. You may recognize her as the Show Booking Coordinator. You may see Mylissa at a show, as she continues to be part of the acting team, as well as the administrative side. We really put the small in small business, as the people who run the company are there on a day to day business, caring about the end product, so you can rest assured you are in good hands. 

We don’t just make murder. We make murder better
