Michelle Collins, star of EastEnders, Coronation Street and 2000 Acres of Sky, is to star as the iconic Miss Scarlett in the new play Cluedo – which comes to Mayflower Theatre from 17to 21 May.

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.

 “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Cluedo,” says Michelle Collins. “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 have really enjoyed reading the script… I’m sure audiences across the UK will love it.”

Based on the classic Hasbro detective board game loved by generations and the hit 1985 Paramount film, Clue, this brand new comedy thriller will keep you guessing right to the end, as both the guests and audience try to work out whodunit, with what, and where!
