Plot Summary

The classic board game is brought to life in Clue: On Stage! Six guests are invited to a dinner party thrown by an anonymous host. They are given aliases–Colonel Mustard, Mrs. White, Mr. Green, Mrs. Peacock, Professor Plum, and Miss Scarlet. Though discouraged from revealing personal information, it is soon discovered that all of them have fallen victim to the same blackmailer, their very host of the evening. Each is presented with a weapon and an option: pay their extortionist double, or kill the innocent butler. What follows is a madcap, slapstick evening full of murder, mystery, and laughs as they seek to puzzle out the culprit among criminals. Contains adult humor and mild violence.

Adapted from the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn
Adapted from the Paramount Pictures film written by Jonathan Lynn and the board game from Hasbro, Inc.
Additional Materials by Hunter Foster, Eric Price, & Sandy Rustin


Character Breakdown

WADSWORTH (Male): A traditional British butler in every sense: uptight, formal and “by the book.” He is the driving force in the play.

YVETTE (Female): A sexy, French Maid, with her own secret aspirations. (Also plays THE REPORTER in the final scene).

MISS SCARLET (Female): A dry, sardonic D.C. Madam who is more interested in secrets than sex.

MRS. PEACOCK (Female): The church-going wife of a Senator. A bit batty, neurotic, and quick to hysteria.

MRS. WHITE (Female): A pale, morbid, and tragic woman. Mrs. White may or may not be the murderer of her five ex-husbands.

COLONEL MUSTARD (Male): A puffy, pompous, dense, blow-hard of a military man.

PROFESSOR PLUM (Male): An academic Casanova who woos women with his big … brain.
