The Mystery of Edwin Drood

By Rupert Holmes

Past Event

Event cancelled week of 7 September 2020. Please see more information here.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a comedic, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name.

In the small town of Cloisterham, England, the young Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering uncle John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious and geographically untraceable Landless twins? Or someone else even more dastardly?

Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit, so we are left without an ending! However, fear not: Rupert Holmes’ Tony-winning musical asks the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote fit for a cabaret all of its own.

The show features a host of colourful characters, as well as a big-scale ensemble sure to knock your socks off with their punchy charm and mysterious intrigue. Come along and help us solve The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
