Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives, by choosing the identity of the murderer.
The tale is presented as a show-within-a-show, as the Music Hall Royale - a traveling Victorian theatre troupe full of just as many colourful characters as the roles they play - presents Dickens’ brooding mystery.In small town of Cloisterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has mysteriously disappeared, believed murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous?
Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the conclusion. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.
