About Us.

We are a young vibrant theatre company, specialising in Murder Mystery theatre events in Glasgow, Edinburgh and various parts of Scotland.  We perform in virtually any settings and also provide private and corporate events.

The company was started when the lack of professional acting work encouraged many of us into having to create our own source of employment. This means that we represent actors from across the mediums of film, television, theatre and radio. We write, produce and direct all our own original material and can adapt each story to suit the venue.

As a company we soon realised that there was room in the market to provide professional theatrical performances in the style of Murder Mystery events.

We have performed all over the country and have a residential venue in Glasgow city centre and Edinburgh. We feel that to be able to provide a variety of mysteries in our own unique style has allowed us to cater to a wider audience. Our shows cover the Victorian and modern age and can be light hearted, comedy or dark and chilling. Essentially something for everyone.

We are constantly looking to expand and have exciting prospects for 2017 and beyond...

As soon as she came out she phoned me ranting and raving about how good a night it was and she will Definitely be attending another, to the point she asked how to book and got a list off people to get to go to the next one!

The memory of our fantastic murder mystery will stay with us for many years to come.” L.Cundy 22nd May 2104

“I would like to say thank you so much. It was a great event and everybody had an amazing time. The quote of the night...when the detective was eliminating suspects...."oh my god im just so excited”. The actors were fantastic and their accents were so convincing that a lot of us believed that they genuinely were American. Highly recommended and we will all definitely be back to this company again." R.Sandhu 21st May 2014

"Just to say we had a great time at the Queensferry Hotel on 3 May trying to solve the murder. Congratulations to the cast for their performance, and the twist at the end, all adds to the fun.

“I just wanted to thank you, on behalf of our group, for a fantastic evening on 22nd February. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely consider joining an event again in future. In particular, Evans was most personable, helpful and he was even kind enough to join in a couple of our Hen-night pranks, albeit in a very classy way. We were impressed by all the Murder Mystery team and the staff from Crowne Plaza who were involved also. I would highly recommend this event to anyone seeking something different and is a great ice-breaker for a group dinner. Many thanks again.” J.Harrison 27th February 2014

"My friends and I had a great time at the Murder Mystery last night at  Menzies Hotel. We loved it and the actors all did a great job in  creating the scenes; a very impressive team. Thank you all so much." M.Thomson 17th February 2014

"My cousin and I engaged 'It's a Complete Mystery' for a 60th birthday bash, at very short notice, after another company let us down. Lindsey and his team were absolutely magnificent. The players were believable, engaging and funny, giving everyone at the party a wonderful night to remember for a very long time. Lindsey was a joy to work with in terms of arrangements, his relaxed yet confident manner put my mind at ease as soon as I spoke with him. If you are looking for a good night, something a wee bit different yet utterly enjoyable, then look no further than 'It's a Complete Mystery'. You will not be disappointed.” M.Wheeler"27th January 2014

" We would like to send a massive thank you for the murder mystery event. All the family really enjoyed it and there was much discussion on the Sunday from the Miami Vice team on how great they were at working out the mystery. All the family had a fantastic time and already talking about having another one sometime in the future." ​P & J Barnett 17th November 2013.

"A great night, superbly organised and fantastic value for money - actors very professional entertaining the audience and keeping us engrossed in the "murder "plot - it was like interactive theatre with an enjoyable meal. Thanks again." M.Chateau 3rd November 2013

"I just wish to send my most heartfelt thanks to you and your team for a terrific birthday present for my partner. Jackie is one of those people who doesn't wish for anything and prefers something that makes memories to remember, rather than a physical gift (perfume, chocolates, flowers, etc.). So, the evening of Alice with Malice on the 21st in Edinburgh really made her night. We were by the looks of it the 'newbies' to it all, but I think we managed to finish with honour. We shall be returning sooner rather than later..." C.Johnston 10th October 2013
