Play based on Cluedo boardgame to tour the UK next year

The production will embark in January


A new play based on the popular boardgame Cluedo will tour the UK next year.

The production will be directed by Mark Bell, director of The Play That Goes Wrong and A Comedy About A Bank Robbery.

It's based on the screenplay for the 1985 film Clue by Jonathan Lynn, and written by Sandy Rustin with additional materials by Hunter Foster and Eric Price and for the UK production, Mark Bell.

The creative team also includes movement director Anna Healey, set and costume designer David Farley, lighting designer Warren Letton and sound designer Jon Fiber. Casting will be announced soon.

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.

What's clear is 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.

Cluedo is produced by Joshua Andrews and Stuart Galbraith of Kilimanjaro Theatricals, in collaboration with their US producing partners Work Light Productions, Lively McCabe Entertainment and The Araca Group.
