Set in the 60s, the play features an original story with characters like 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 written by the BAFTA Award-winning TV writing duo, Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran, known for shows like Birds of a Feather and Dreamboats and Petticoats. The play is directed by Mark Bell, who also directed the original Cluedo play in the UK and the worldwide phenomenon, The Play That Goes Wrong.

As the bodies pile up, the colourful characters dart from room to room, trying to escape the murderer and survive the night. The play will keep the audience guessing right up to the finale, inviting budding detectives of all ages to watch for clues and unravel the secrets as they try to figure out whodunnit, with what and where!

Casting is to be announced.

The production is produced by JAS Theatricals, Gabriel Creative Partners, The Araca Group and Lively McCabe Entertainment.
