Actress Michelle Collins, famed for roles in TV dramas EastEnders, Coronation Street and 2000 Acres of Sky, is to star as Miss Scarlett in the UK Tour of the new play Cluedo.
Based on the classic Hasbro detective board game loved by generations and the hit 1985 Paramount film Clue, the brand new comedy thriller opens on 28 January at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre and will then visit theatres across the country until the end of July.
Michelle Collins “Thrilled” at Scarlett Role!
“I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Cluedo,” sqys Michelle, ” It’s such an iconic game and I remember how much I loved playing it with my cousins when we were younger. I’m delighted that it’s being brought to the stage – and having really enjoyed reading the script, I’m sure audiences across the UK will love it.”
The story is reminiscent of the game as following Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Reverend Green, Mrs. White and Colonel Mustard as they realise they all have something to hide, grow to suspect each other and are one by one killed off.
This hilarious spoof of a thriller, will keep you guessing right up to the finale as both the guests and audience try to work out who is the killer, what they used and where it happened.
Play That Goes Wrong Director On Board for Cluedo
This UK premiere production is directed by Mark Bell, director of the award winning ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ and just like the game, it promises audiences of all ages a nostalgic and thrilling evening.
Producer Josh Andrews says: “We wanted an iconic actress to play such an iconic character and we could not be happier to have Michelle starring as Miss Scarlett in Cluedo. Both the game and Clue the movie, are much loved by all ages, so it’s a privilege to bring this new play of Cluedo to the UK stage and it could not be in more suitable hands than our director, Mark Bell. He certainly knows how to deliver a night full of great fun and entertainment!”
