Event Description

Solve the Mystery: "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" by Rupert Holmes, Directed by Jenny Fitts Reynolds

Step into the captivating world of "The Mystery of Edwin Drood," a hilarious and interactive whodunit mystery musical that puts YOU in the detective's seat! Based on Charles Dickens' unfinished novel, this clever production invites the audience to become the ultimate sleuths and unravel the perplexing case of Edwin Drood's mysterious murder.

In the quaint town of Chesterham, England, the charming Edwin Drood has met a grim fate, but the question remains: who is the culprit? Could it be his romantic rival, the enigmatic John Jasper? Perhaps the notorious Princess Puffer, known for her involvement in opium and vice? Or maybe the newly arrived Landless twins from Ceylon hold the key to the puzzle? With Dickens himself leaving the story unfinished, it's up to the audience to decide the fate of these colorful characters.

Presented in a metatheatrical style by the Music Hall Royale, a traveling Victorian theatre troupe brimming with eccentric personalities, this inventive musical promises an evening of intrigue and entertainment for all. Join us as we journey through a world of twists, turns, and unexpected revelations!
