News: Stage play based on classic Cluedo board game to tour UK in 2022

A brand new stage play based on the classic Hasbro board game Cluedo is set to tour the UK in 2022, also taking inspiration from the hit 1985 Paramount film Clue.

Was it Miss Scarlet, with the revolver in the dining room, or was it Professor Plum, with the lead pipe in the library?

Produced by Joshua Andrews and Stuart Galbraith of Kilimanjaro Theatricals, in collaboration with Work Light Productions, Lively McCabe Entertainment & The Araca Group, this new stage show will 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.

It’s clear 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!

Directed by Bell, who helmed the award-winning The Play That Goes Wrong and A Comedy About A Bank Robbery, the show promises audiences of all ages a nostalgic, fun and thrilling evening of entertainment.

Creative team also includes set and costume designer David Farley, lighting designer by Warren Letton, sound designer by Jon Fiber and movement director Anna Healey.
