Suspects! Motives! Mystery! It’s an incredible interactive evening experience.

Enjoy an evening of mystery, intrigue, and, of course, murder. It is the late 1920s and the Seiberlings are hosting a troupe of performers with, shall we say, some skeletons in the closet.

The evening begins in the Music Room where guests will meet the troupe and see some ‘memorable’ performances. Will the show go on as planned? Or will the troupe’s dark past reveal itself once again? Guests will interact with and interrogate the suspects while trying to figure out who is innocent and who has something to hide. The evening concludes in the Manor House Reception Hall. Guests will enjoy light refreshments and make a final analysis before all is revealed and the murderer is identified.

Guests are encouraged to dress in latter 1920s attire. The award-winning Murder in the Mansion program is recommended for ages 17 and older. To fully participate, please expect long periods of standing and walking, as well as going up and down stairs.

Presented by the Stan Hywet Historic Players, a volunteer acting troupe who interpret 1920s Stan Hywet.
