It’s a dark and stormy night, and you’ve been invited to a very unusual dinner party. Each of the guests has an alias, the butler offers a variety of weapons, and the host is, well… dead. So whodunnit? Join the iconic oddballs known as Scarlet, Plum, White, Green, Peacock, and Mustard as they race to find the murderer in Boddy Manor before the body count stacks up. Based on the cult classic film and the popular board game Clue is a mad-cap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.

There are parts available for five men and five women, plus additional ensemble. Actors should be prepared to do a cold reading from the script. 

WADSWORTH – A traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play.

YVETTE – A sexy, French Maid, with her own secret aspirations. 

MISS SCARLET – A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam who is more interested in secrets than sex.

MRS. PEACOCK – The church-going wife of a Senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.

MRS. WHITE – A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.

COLONEL MUSTARD – A puffy, pompous, dense, blow-hard of a military man.

PROFESSOR PLUM – An academic Casanova who woos women with his big … brain

GREEN – A timid, yet officious, rule follower. He’s a bit of a klutz and awfully anxious.

ENSEMBLE WOMAN TO PLAY:
THE COOK – A threatening presence.
THE MOTORIST – A benign gentleman who rings the wrong doorbell.
AUXILIARY SCARLET – The back of Miss Scarlet during a scene of theatrical trickery.
AUXILIARY WADSWORTH – Wadsworth during two scenes of theatrical trickery.
AN AGENT – An FBI agent who helps to save the day.
