CHICAGO, Aug. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Richard H. Driehaus Museum's popular Murder Mystery returns with a new format and a new tale. Set in 1915, Feud in Ragtime is filled with countless twists and turns, and features a cocktail reception, a seated four-course meal and augmented guest participation – you could be the Murderer!

This year's event is a lighthearted, bawdy romp into the bloody feud between two prominent Chicago families. Hilarious hijinks and scandalous secrets set the stage for a farce of murderous proportions! You could solve the crime or get away with murder – either way, be careful – you might just die laughing!

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.

There are two opportunities to attend this special event: Friday, October 24 and Saturday, October 25, commencing at 6:30 p.m. A Single Ticket is $110 and a Pair is $200.

About the Driehaus Museum

Steps away from Chicago's Magnificent Mile, the Richard H. Driehaus Museum is a fascinating and rare example of the palatial homes erected by the wealthy of America's Gilded Age. The galleries are elegantly furnished with pieces from the most celebrated designers of the late 19th and early 20th century, such as Louis Comfort Tiffany and the Herter Brothers. These objets d'art are presented in harmony with the immaculately-restored interiors and surviving furnishings of the Samuel M. Nickerson Mansion, which was designated as a Chicago landmark in 1977.
