Educated at St. Margaret's College in Christchurch and the Canterbury College School of Art, Marsh became an actress with the Allan Wilkie Shakespeare Company during their tour of 1919-1920.

Her mother died later that year. In 1934, she made her debut in the detective genre with A Man Lay Dead, which was well-received and established her as one of the top female detective authors with Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers and Margery Allingham. Until her death in 1982, Marsh produced 32 detective novels, many of which are set in an English village or country house. She introduced the detective Roderick Alleyn, who appeared in all of her works. Her love of the theatre led her to found the British Commonwealth Theatre Company in 1951 and in 1967 the Ngaio Marsh Theatre opened. She won many accolades for her directing skills and her productions were widely acclaimed. Marsh was awarded an OBE in 1948 and a DBE in 1966.
