A brand new stage adaptation of the Cluedo board game will begin a nationwide tour next year.
This upcoming comedy is based on the classic Hasbro board game and 1985 American film called Clue.
Just like the game, the play follows our notorious group of suspects: Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Reverend Green, Mrs White and Colonel Mustard.
However as they each arrive at a country house, characters end up being killed with a variety of familiar weapons. Thus, everyone is left wondering one ominous question – who will be next?
The screenplay will be based on the aforementioned 1985 film Clue by Jonathan Lynn, written by Sandy Rustin. There will also be additional material by Hunter Foster and Eric Price.
Mark Bell, who has previously directed award-winning hits such as The Play That Goes Wrong and A Comedy About A Bank Robbery, will direct the play.
The production also features movement by Anna Healey, set and costume design by David Farley, lighting design by Warren Letton, and sound design by Jon Fiber.
Cluedo is produced by Joshua Andrews and Stuart Galbraith of Kilimanjaro Theatricals. Both are reportedly working collaboratively with U.S. producing partners Work Light Productions, Lively McCabe Entertainment, and The Araca Group.
Audiences will get to find out whodunit first at the premiere at the Churchill Theatre in Bromley 24 January 2022. Casting is yet to be announced.
A full list of tour dates and venues can be found online.
