CLUE Tops the List!
21 Jun

The Most Produced Full Length Play in USA high schools in 2021-2022

The USA's Educational Theatre Association have unveiled their annual list of most-produced plays and musicals during the 2021-2022 season. Once again, the most produced play of the year was CLUE -- a title the work has held for three years running.

Based on the Screenplay by Jonathan Lynn
Additional Material by Hunter Foster, Sandy Rustin and Eric Price
Full Length Play, Comedy, Mystery/Thriller, 1950s
Cast: 5M, 5F
On a dark and stormy night, six unique guests, plus a butler and a maid, assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up.
Based on the popular board game and adapted from the cult classic film, CLUE is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.
