Was it Miss Scarlett, with the revolver, in the dining room……?
Actress Michelle Collins, star of EastEnders, Coronation Street and 2000 Acres of Sky, is to star as the iconic Miss Scarlett in the UK Tour of the new play Cluedo, which begins in January 2022.
Based on the classic Hasbro detective board game loved by generations and the hit 1985 Paramount film CLUE, the brand new comedy thriller opens on 28 January at Bromley’s Churchill Theatre and will then visit theatres across the country until the end of July.
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.”
The full cast features Jean-Luke Worrell as Wadsworth; Laura Kirman as Yvette; Wesley Griffith as Colonel Mustard; Etisyai Philip as Mrs White, Judith Amesenga as Mrs Peacock and Tom Babbage as Reverend Green. Ensemble are Harry Bradley and Meg Travers, with Georgia Bradley and Liam Harrigan as understudies.
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!
