4th Annual Murder Mystery at the Marble Palace

Friday, October 24

6:30 p.m.

It’s a new century and the world is changing at a rapid pace.  Commerce and industry continue to experience tremendous growth and Americans are enjoying the novelty of innovative technology.  Radios, telephones, motor cars and motion-picture films have profoundly altered daily life and influence American culture in extraordinary ways.  From the latest Ragtime tunes of Tin Pan Alley by Joplin and Berlin, to the emergence of Hollywood and those wildly-popular black and white silent-films featuring the antics of Charlie Chaplin and screen siren, Lillian Gish—life in the early 20th-century was incandescent with possibility.

Nevertheless, these heady times of prosperity and progress have sown the seeds of discontent.  In 1915, the world is at war and so is Chicago’s high society.  This year’s Murder Mystery, Feud in Ragtime, is a lighthearted, bawdy romp into the bloody feud between two prominent Chicago families. Filled with countless twists and turns, hilarious hijinks and scandalous secrets set the stage for a farce of murderous proportions!

Join us for an entertaining evening featuring a cocktail reception, a seated four-course meal, and lively guest participation!  Tickets include a reception, dinner in the Museum’s historic Ballroom, and prizes. Period attire is encouraged, but not required. Guests must be 21 years of age.  As space is limited, advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Feud in Ragtime is presented in partnership with Get Away with Murder Productions.
