Arcola Queer Collective

The Cluedo Club Killings

by Robert Holtom

Directed by Nat Kennedy

“A most grave affair brings us all together tonight, the death of our dear host Dr Black…”

There’s a murderer on the loose – and they’ve got it in for the Cluedo Club.

Armed with a vast knowledge of the crime fiction genre, it’s up to student sleuth Esther Jones to crack the case before it’s too late. She may not have any evidence to go on, but she does have a list of Agatha Christie’s best-trodden tropes, and quite the over-active imagination.

Leave the candlestick in the conservatory and hot-foot it to Robert Holtom‘s hilarious new thriller.

Director Nat Kennedy and the Arcola Queer Collective present fabulously queer reimaginings of your Cluedo favourites – from Mx Peacock to Colonel Mustard – on a quick-witted quest to discover the truth.

It’s Miss Marple meets Skins, and 100% queer – truly an evening to die for.

★★★★ Part burlesque, part Brecht, this is a stylised piece that often leans towards performance art and explores a complex and intimate web of friends and lovers grappling with desire, submission and unrequited love.
—LGBTQ+ Arts Review on The X
Ultimately, this is a play that delights, beguiles and reminds one of the hard-won happiness we are blissfully free to pursue in 2017.
—Attitude Magazine on The Drag
The Drag feels utterly celebratory...A succès de scandale!
—Times Literary Supplement on The Drag
★★★★ Tender, funny and utterly brilliant… I urge you to beg, borrow or steal a ticket, if you have to!
—DIVA Magazine on The Little Prince
★★★★★ Surely the most inventive, outrageous, and thoroughly enjoyable bending of the Bard that we’ve witnessed … An ingenious blending of classical theatre with burlesque, cabaret and queer politics … Do yourself a favour and run away with the fairies.”
—Gay Times on A Midsummer Night's Dream
