A Mysterious Affair

Thursday, January 30 @ 7:00 pm10:00 pm

On January 30th, don your deerstalker hat, polish your monocle, twirl your mustaches, brush off your furs, and stroll onto the scene of a 1920s English country house murder mystery at the Providence Athenæum. The entire library will transform into an elegant estate, marred by a terrible crime. While you sip, nibble, and socialize, can you follow the clues to lead you to the truth?

The affair includes a live radio play by the Wilbury Theatre Group, a curious photobooth, mysteries and clues for guests to solve, and an extravagant cocktail bar. Proceeds from this evening will directly benefit the Athenæum’s collections, programs, and historic home.

21+ event. Open bar & hors d’oeuvres served. Event will take place on both levels of the building. English country-house/1920s cocktail attire encouraged.

Event sponsors will be invited to a VIP reception with early access to the evening’s entertainment, plus a special champagne toast.

Tickets are limited, and we expect to sell out quickly! If you are unable to attend, but would like to make a donation in support of the Athenæum and its programs, please click here to make a gift online.
