What is Cluedo 2: The Next Chapter?

The brand new show, due to run between Thursday Febraury 29 and Saturday, July 27, is a comedy whodunnit which comes off the back of the successful Cleudo stage play, in turn based off the famous board game.

Set in the 1960s, audiences will meet a host of new suspects, a new house, and a lot of new bodies, in what is described as a tale of murder, mystery and secret passageways.

Cleudo 2 centres around broke rock n roll legend Rick Black, who excited to reveal his long-awaited comeback album, assembles his supermodel wife, The Honourable Emerald Peacock; his manager, Colonel Eugene Mustard (played by Casualty and Heartbeat star Jason Durr); long-time roadie “Professor” Alex Plum; Annabel Scarlett his trusted interior designer and housekeeper Mrs White, in his brand new, expensive home.
