Cluedo – Michelle Collins and Daniel Casey discuss the stage adaptation of the popular board game
WhatsOnStage recently met Cluedo stars Michelle Collins (who plays Miss Scarlett) and Daniel Casey (Professor Plum), along with director Mark Bell, to talk about the current UK premiere of the series.
The stage adaptation is an amalgamation of the popular detective board game and Paramount’s 1985 film Indexwritten by Sandy Rustin (partly based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn), with additional material by Bell, Hunter Foster and Eric Price.
Collins and Casey are joined in the cast by 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).
Rounding out the company are ensemble members Harry Bradley and Meg Travers, plus stunt doubles Georgia Bradley and Liam Harrigan.
The production’s creative team also includes set and costume designer David Farley, lighting designer Warren Latvian, sound designer Jon Fiber and motion director Anna Healey.
Produced by Josh Andrews and Stuart Galbraith of Kilimanjaro Theatricals, in partnership with Work Light Productions, Lively McCabe Entertainment and The Araca Group, the comedy opened in Bromley on January 28. His current commitment to Richmond will end this Saturday March 12 and the tour will then continue to Coventry, Leeds, Cardiff, Shrewsbury, Bath, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Southampton, Sheffield, Milton Keynes, Leicester, Brighton, Malvern, Salford, Glasgow, Wolverhampton and Cornwall.
