Was it Miss Scarlett, with the revolver, in the dining room…?
Actress Michelle Collins, star of EastEnders, Coronation Street and 2,000 Acres of Sky, is to star as the iconic Miss Scarlett in the UK Tour of the new play Cluedo, which is showing at The Alexandra, Birmingham from Mon 2-Sat 7 May, 2022.
Based on the classic Hasbro detective board game loved by generations and the hit 1985 Paramount film Clue, the brand-new comedy thriller will be showing on 2 May to 7 May 2022 at the Alexandra theatre, Birmingham.
Michelle Collins says: “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Cluedo. It’s such an iconic game and I remember how much I loved playing it with my cousins when we were younger. I’m delighted that it’s being brought to the stage – and having really enjoyed reading the script, I’m sure audiences across the UK will love it.”
When Miss Scarlett, Professor Plum, Mrs Peacock, Reverend Green, Mrs White and Colonel Mustard arrive at a country house one dark and stormy evening, they are surprised to find they have all received the same intriguing invitation from Lord Boddy. It soon becomes clear that they all have something to hide as the mystery and hysteria grows and the inhabitants and guests of Boddy Manor are killed off one by one, with a variety of familiar weapons, leaving everyone to wonder, who will be next?
This hilarious spoof of a thriller will keep you guessing right up to the finale as both the guests and audience try to work out whodunnit…. with what… and where!
