Central Park Players

Clue: On Stage

Book by: Sandy Rustin

Directed by: Darcie Beekman
Assistant Director by: Diane Reeths
Produced by: Joy Lamphere

Performance Dates:


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 madcap comedy that will keep you guessing until the final twist.
