Melodramatic Mysteries is an immersive larp organization started by Pam Hargrove and Lianna Lawrence. They run approximately four interactive theater events per year, each a one-shot lasting between four and eight hours.
MM games emphasize role-playing, detailed pre-written characters and high production values. Their content ranges across many genres, from fantastical to realistic. Their events often take place at Wyvern Manor, the private Victorian home of Hargrove and Lawrence in the City of Orange, California, but some events have had scenes in multiple locations across Orange.
They utilize a simple rule system, high NPC to player ratio, and production elements such as props from award-winning crafters.
