You’re cordially invited to the Dunn Speakeasy to celebrate the wedding of the year!  But, be careful who you trust, because tonight someone’s going to get whacked and it’s up to you to solve the mystery! In this fully immersive show, guests are welcomed into a world of 1920’s Chicago mafia by costumed actors who will assign roles to some members of the audience as well.  Guests will be on a team at their table, and will work together to solve the crime. Sign up on your own, or get a group together and build your own team.

Heavy appetizers, a signature cocktail and dessert are included in ticket price. Drinks including beer and wine are available for purchase at the cash bar at criminally affordable prices.

7:30pm Stuart Community Room. 

Costumes optional: Flapper dresses, zoot suits, feather boas and headbands, pinstriped suits and fedoras are all appropriate. Traditional wedding attire is nifty too!

Presented by The Murder Mystery Company which performs for over 500,000 guests each year.

Please note:  The performances often involve comic violence, sexual innuendos, adult situations, and occasional strong language. This event can best be quantified as a PG-13 rating.


This event is celebrating our collaboration with the History Center of Lake Forest- Lake Bluff’s 20’s in the 20’s campaign.
