There have been more additions to the most star-studded murder mystery show in London. During the productions upcoming run, the cast of Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] will be joined by Adam Hills, Jason Manford, Neil Morrissey, Clarke Peters & Sandi Toksvig.
This unique show will also feature the voice of Miriam Margolyes, who’ll be lending her vocal talents to the narrative alongside the iconic Ian McKellen and Judi Dench.
This incredible line-up will join an equally spectacular cast over the course of its short run. Previously announced to appear in the show are Clive Anderson, Gillian Anderson, John Bishop, Gyles Brandreth, Marcus Brigstocke, Jim Broadbent, Ronan Keating, Damian Lewis, Maureen Lipman, Joanna Lumley, Meera Syal, Catherine Tate, Tim Vine and Ruby Wax.
Each night a different guest star will take part in the show, playing Inspector and trying to solve the murder. But while the ensemble around them have rehearsed, the star guest hasn’t been so fortunate. They won’t have seen a script, attended rehearsals or even received any prior direction. Their task is to solve the crime in real time, with only an earpiece feeding them lines as they attempt to crack the case, avoid the furniture and stagger their way to justice.
And while the guest star won’t know what awaits them, neither will the audience. They’ll only discover which VIP will be playing detective that night when they appear onstage.
Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] is a fundraising production, where every penny raised will go towards keeping the Park Theatre inclusive and accessible for all. So all the guest actors are donating their time in order to take part in this special show.
Artistic Director, Jez Bond, said: “We’re very fortunate that the leading actors in our country understand the power and importance of smaller scale theatres and the challenges they face. Performing across the run are a mixture of those who’ve supported us since the building was a hard-hat site and those who’ve come to know us more recently. I am grateful to everyone who has donated their time to help raise vital funds by performing this show – and am thrilled they’re so up for it!”
Whodunnit [Unrehearsed] will run between 15-27 July at the Park Theatre. Tickets are available now.
