Following the huge success of the critically acclaimed original play, Cluedo returns to the stage in 2024 with a brand new comedy mystery. The hilarious whodunnit returns with a new story, a new house, new suspects and lots of new bodies.
Based on the classic Hasbro board game, the five month UK tour marks the world premiere of Cluedo 2 – The Next Chapter, which kicks off at Richmond Theatre on 29 February and visits more than 20 venues across the length and breadth of the UK, including Cardiff’s New Theatre from June 25-29, 2024.
With an original new story set in the 60s, featuring The Honourable Mrs. Emerald Peacock, Colonel Eugene Mustard, ‘Professor’ Alex Plum, Miss Annabel Scarlett, ‘The Reverend’ Hal Green and the housekeeper Mrs White, Cluedo 2 – The Next Chapter is a riotous spoof of a comedy thriller penned by the BAFTA Award winning TV writing duo, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, whose numerous credits include Birds of a Feather and Dreamboats and Petticoats, and directed by Mark Bell, who directed the original Cluedo play in the UK and the worldwide phenomenon, The Play That Goes Wrong.
As the bodies pile up and our infamous colourful characters dart from room to room trying to escape the murderer and survive the night, Cluedo 2, will keep audiences guessing right up to the finale and invites budding detectives of all ages to watch for the clues and unravel the secrets, as they try to work out whodunnit… with what… and where!
