If you are familiar with the scenarios of suspecting Miss Scarlet committing a murder with a revolver in the dining room, or discovering it was Professor Plum committing the deadly deed with the lead pipe in the library, then a forthcoming stage play of Cluedo may be one to watch!
The new stage play based on the classic Hasbro detective board game loved by generations and the hit 1985 Paramount film Clue, is to tour the UK between January and July 2022. Based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn, the play is written by Sandy Rustin with additional materials by Hunter Foster and Eric Price and for the UK production, Mark Bell.
When Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Revered Green, Mrs. White and Colonel Mustard all arrive at a country house one dark and stormy evening, they are concerned to find they have all received the same mysterious invitation from Lord Boddy. What’s clear is that they all have something to hide and the mystery and hysteria grows, as the inhabitants and guests of Boddy Manor start being killed, with a variety of familiar weapons, leaving everyone to wonder, who will be next!
Casting for Cluedo will be announced soon. This UK premiere production is directed by Mark Bell, director of the award winning The Play That Goes Wrong and A Comedy About A Bank Robbery and just like the game, it promises audiences of all ages a nostalgic, fun and thrilling evening of entertainment.
